Math and Science Resources from NASA

There are some great new educational resources from NASA that are perfect for middle school students.

For all sorts of information about space science and technology, check out the website The Nasa Universe. It has lots of great NASA videos, such as the one below showing pictures from the Hubble Telescope:
Hubble Space Telescope Ultra Deep Field 3-D Fly-Thru
There are also PowerPoint-like presentations, publications, additional videos, and more to help your students better understand the science behind sending someone to outer space!
Then on a different site, NASA offers up its "Space Math" page here.  This gives a variety of applied math problems, with the latest ones being developed  on Astrobiology Math and Remote Sensing Math.All these resources are free, at least right now, so take advantage of them while you can.
