Here’s what’s included:
Exoplanet Space Tourism Posters
NASA’s Kepler space telescope, which has already discovered more than 1,000 planets beyond our solar system, continues to identify more and more of these so-called exoplanets – some of which have features similar to Earth. (Learn more about these worlds on NASA's Exoplanet Exploration website.) This popular poster set imagines what life would be like on these distant worlds.
Note: The bulletin board materials will include a small sample of the full set, which can be downloaded here.
Reading, Writing and Rings
Closer to home, September 15 will mark the end of the Cassini mission, which has spent nearly 13 years orbiting the ringed giant Saturn. Images and science from Cassini have shaped our understanding of Saturn and its mysterious moons, and continue to provide wonder to students. This collection of activities will get students using reading and writing to explore the Cassini mission’s science at Saturn.
Find out more about the Cassini mission and its Grand Finale on Sept. 15, 2017.
Take in some of Cassini’s best views of Saturn with these NASA postcards featuring images from the mission!
