NASA: Planet Quest - The Search for Another Earth

This website addresses NASA's goal of embarking on a series of missions to find and characterize planets around stars other than the sun to help determine if life exists on other planets. Users can view the fascinating video summarizing the missions and can take an interactive quiz to test their knowledge of the realities of extraterrestrial life and space exploration. The site presents an interesting historical account of the stars, planets, and also life studies. Individuals can learn about the use of inferometry, planet imaging, and formation flying in the TPF, SIM, Kepler, and other missions. One of the site's best assets is the continually updated New Worlds Atlas, where users can explore the planets of the Universe in 3-D. Visitors can also find numerous games, simulations, animations, videos, and educational activities.
