The SQUID, the planetary scientist and a lot of little bits of moon rock Benjamin Weiss is conducting laboratory magnetic studies on rocks from Mars, the Moon, and Earth to understand the evolution of planets, magnetism, and life. He is using SQUID microscopy, a new technique several orders of magnitude more sensitive than standard SQUID moment magnetometry that makes high-resolution magnetic maps of room temperature samples. His research team is broadly interested in the role of magnetic fields on planets in the early solar system. This area of resear

How to Build A Road (Interactive)
The Alaska Highway is a stretch of road that runs 1,520 miles from Dawson Creek, British Columbia to Fairbanks, Alaska. Its construction began in 1942 in the discontinuous permafrost zone, where the soil is frozen solid in some places and boggy in others. In this interactive activity from the American Experience Web site, learn about the unexpected geology and weather-related challenges faced by Army road crews as they built over frozen earth and swampland in the midst of changing temp
Infrared Gallery (Interactive)
All objects emit infrared radiation -- the hotter an object is, the more intensely it radiates infrared wavelengths. Human eyes cannot see these wavelengths, but with the help of false-color imaging, temperature differences become visible and invisible features are suddenly illuminated. In this interactive gallery produced for Teachers' Domain, see what hydrothermal features and other objects look like in both visible and infrared light.
Lewis & Clark Expedition
This video tells the story of the Lewis and Clark expedition. In 1804 Jefferson sent a team to explore lands acquired in the
Louisiana Purchase. The Corps of Discovery will travel nearly 8,000
miles over three years, reaching the Pacific Ocean and clearing the path for westward expansion. The video uses animation and provides a brief overview of what they found. ( 1:46)
Louisiana Purchase Doubles U.S.
This video explains the background of how Thomas Jefferson was able to buy 800,000 square miles from the French, stretching from the Mississippi River to the Rocky Mountains. The video also explains how the land actually belonged to the Native Americans occupying it.
