Description:

Developed at the University of California Berkeley, this Web site assists educators in integrating advanced space science research into their curriculum by allowing the Cosmic Hot Interstellar Plasma Spectrometer (CHIPS) mission to be available to the public. Users can learn about the topics such as the Interstellar Medium and the Local Bubble as well as concepts dealing with heat, light, temperature, and matter. The site provides many links to images of the launch, which took place on January 12, 2003. While learning why the mission is investigating the plasma between the stars, high school students will find activities and short questions that will help them better understand the difficult concepts. Students may also want to periodically visit this site because soon lessons dealing with exploration of ionization and radiation will be added.
