SAMPEX - A Synoptic View of Earths Electron Radiation Belts: North Pole Energetic Fluxes from HILT
The Solar Anomalous and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer, SAMPEX, measures fluxes of energetic particles from the sun, the Earths magnetosphere, and cosmic ray sources over a broad range of energies. The four instruments aboard SAMPEX are the Low-Energy Ion Analyzer (LEICA), The Heavy Ion Large Telescope (HILT), The Mass Spectrometer Telescope (MAST), and the Proton-Electron Telescope (PET).
Simulations of the Breakup of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 Employing a Swarm Model: Initial Conditions
The breakup of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 due to its gravitational interaction with Jupiter in July, 1994 is simulated using a swarm model. In this simulation, the comet is modeled as an initially spherical distribution of 16,384 particles. The particles interact with the tidal field of Jupiter and with each other through inter-particle gravitation and collisions. All simulations were performed on the Maspar MP-2 at NASA-GSFC.
Great Zoom into Houston, Texas: Reliant Stadium (with spin)
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

"Principles of Computer System Design: An Introduction, Spring 2009"
" Principles of Computer System Design: An Introduction is published in two parts. Part I, containing chapters 1-6, is a traditional printed textbook published by Morgan Kaufman, an imprint of Elsevier. Part II, containing chapters 7-11, is available here as an open educational resource. This textbook, an introduction to the principles and abstractions used in the design of computer systems, is an outgrowth of notes written for 6.033 Computer System Engineering over a period of 40-plus years.

Baa to the Sun, Sing to the Moon
A sleepy Azibo is awakened by Baabra and her lambs as they say baa loudly to the sun. It's their family tradition; they baa to the sun weekly to say thanks for arriving safely on Panwapa. But they're keeping Azibo awake! That night, the rest of the Panwapa group has their weekly sing-along, while Baabra's lambs try to rest. How can everybody sleep and still respect one another's traditions? If you would like to add more questions or share ideas about how you use Panwapa with your students, creat
Lugosi teaches math - convergence of series
Béla Lugosi teaches advanced mathematical concepts in this video. This is part of the last lecture of his series. He begins this lecture by talking about the Weierstrauss M-Test and talking about how a series or sequence of sums converges. In his lecture he provides the steps for this test, and proofs as well. A great video for advanced math learners. (Calculus and Calculus II students).
What people really want - User validation of "digital city" concepts
This Paper discusses the experience acquired from the user-compatible development of a digital city model as an aid to urban planning based on the endeavours of a large Austrian city. The method selected was a structured survey of the future users of the "Digital City". In the case in question, the addressee is initially an "internal" client, in other words the staff of the Urban Planning Department. Above all findings it seems vital to work more intensive on common terminology and concepts to f

Vincent Van Gogh - An A&E Documentary
It's hard to believe that Van Gogh's work was shunned in his lifetime and that he lived as a peasant. His paintings were ignored. His father was a minister. At 15, Vincent left school and went to work for an art dealership. At 28 he completed his first oil painting. This informative A & E documentary shows many of his paintings during the narration.

Changing the way we work
What does the future hold for our working lives? This album explores the ways in which organisations are changing; the breaking down of traditional hierarchical structures, the increasing emphasis on self-management, customer-orientated teams, the use of technology to enable more remote working and the blurring of boundaries between organisations, as they form partnerships with each other. It also asks how these changes will affect the way managers will work in the future. This material forms pa
Job Interviews is one of several Futures workbooks which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. Interviews are still the most commonly used method for assessing a person’s suitability for a job. In the UK 99 per cent of employers use selection interviews to recruit

Technologies That Changed Our Brains
The Internet is just one in a series of “intellectual technologies” that have reshaped the way humans think. Nicholas Carr discusses some technologies, prior to the Internet, that have radically reshaped the way our brains work. Some of the technologies include the map, clock, and book. This video is in lecture format. (5:00)
Magnetism - by StudyJams
Magnetism is the property of attracting iron. A magnetic object's magnetic force is how strong that attraction is. Magnetic fields are the areas where the magnetic force will work. Magnets also have opposite poles, negative and positive. Learn more about magnetism with this slide show from StudyJams. Detailed images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
