Images from High-Energy Astrophysics Missions
This collection of images features spacecraft and instruments used for high-energy research, typically studies of X-rays and Gamma rays. The collection includes pictures of early astronomy rockets and instruments, an archive of videos, and a large selection of images of vehicles and instruments from more recent missions. Some of the more recent missions also include lightcurve, spectral, and/or image data.

Collisions and Momentum: Bouncing Balls
As a continuation of the theme of potential and kinetic energy, this lesson introduces the concepts of momentum, elastic and inelastic collisions. Many sports and games, such as baseball and ping-pong, illustrate the ideas of momentum and collisions. Students explore these concepts by bouncing assorted balls on different surfaces and calculating the momentum for each ball.
The Earth is a Changin'
This lesson introduces and describes the main types of erosion (i.e., chemical, water, wind, glacier and temperature). Students learn examples of each type of erosion and discuss how erosion changes the surface of the Earth. Students also learn why engineers need to be aware of the different types of erosion in order to protect structures and landmarks from the damaging effects erosion can cause. Figure 1 is an excellent illustration of water erosion.
