The following links are provided as additional resources for the study of space physics.

Space Physics Educational Material


Use these sites to find out more about Space Physics in general.

Windows on the Universe

University of Michigan's extensive educational outreach site, with sections about the planets, the Sun, comets, and asteroids, as well as a vast store of information on the people, missions, science, mythology, and even art associated with the study of our universe. Customizable to your browser and educational level.

Today's Space Weather

NOAA space environment center. Includes a current H-alpha image of the Sun, a 3-day solar activity forecast, and self-updating plots of data from GOES and other satellites describing the solar environment. Also includes links to additional current data as well as data archives.

SpaceWeather.com

An all-around information site for space physics, including descriptions of solar phenomena and data from related instruments. Updated daily with news and conditions.

The Public Connection Project

Rice University's "digital museum" includes realtime earth and space science data, educational programs, videoconferences with scientists, and space weather news.

Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere

A "non-mathematical but quite detailed" overview of current research on the magnetosphere. The site is arranged more or less as a historical account as well as an informational site. An excellent textbook for use as an introduction to the study of space physics in the magnetospheric region.

Latest Images From SoHO

Today's images of the Sun from SOHO's six full-sun "cameras". Also includes real time movies and a screen saver.
