This rich and extensive site from the California Institutes of Technology's Jet Propulsion Laboratory leads users to a vast array of images, videos and resources related to aerospace exploration and technology. Of especial interest to educators will be the Images and Multimedia sections of the site. The images tab takes users to the Planetary Photojournal section which provides access to thousands of photographs of planets (as well as their satellites), asteroids, and comets. In the multimedia section users can view slideshows, listen to podcasts and watch videos which explore a range of topics from the rainbow colors of Saturn to NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Resources on the site are free to use and could be integrated into a variety of curriculum.
