The first periodic table on the web and a high quality source of chemistry information relating to the periodic table. Coverage is such that professional scientists and students at school interested in chemistry and other sciences will all find something useful.
LennTech Periodic Table
Each chemical element contains a link to a page that explains its chemical properties, health effects, environmental effects, application data, an image and also information of the history/inventor of each element.
Los Alamos National Laboratory Periodic Table
For students of all ages.

This website provides an overview of the history, mythology, and current scientific knowledge of the planets, moons and other objects in our solar system. Each page has text and NASA's images, some have sounds and movies, most provide references to additional related information.
The Science Education Gateway provides Earth and Space Science curricula produced by teachers in collaboration with SEGway partners (e.g., NASA, Science Museums). Lessons, activities and self-guided tutorials are categorized under "Space Science", "Sun/Earth", and "Solar System." (Note: you may find some of the same lessons in the web sites of its partners.)
Windows to the Universe
Funded by NASA, this site contains Earth and Space Science documents, including images, movies, animations, and data sets, targeted for elementary, middle school and high school students. Documents provide not only scientific content, but also information about the artistic, historical, and cultural connections between science and our lives. Teacher resources include classroom activities and educational links.
Bradford Robotic Telescope
At this site you can control a remote and fully automated 46 cm telescope connected to the Web. Just register (it's free) with this telescope, located high on the moors in West Yorkshire, England and ask it to look at absolutely anything in the Northern night sky. It decides when the conditions are good enough to make observations, and then posts the documentation, results, and photo of your job.
NASA Education Internet Links
Links to the multitude of NASA educational resources.
National Air and Space Museum (Smithsonian Institution)
Take a 'Virtual Tour' of this museum.
This virtual exposition from the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) has a number of very extensive exhibits for astronomy students and teachers. Movies and sound enhance the site but are not absolutely necessary.
- Cosmos in a Computer Learn more about cosmology - the study of the universe as a whole. Topics include: How did the universe begin? How did it come to be in its present state? What can the universe's present structure tell us about its evolution and ultimate fate? Why are computers essential to understanding the universe? What does it take to compute the cosmos? There are also lots of scientific animations.
- Space time Wrinkles Questions addressed in this exhibit are: Who was Einstein? What is gravity? What are black holes and gravitational waves? Where might black holes lurk? How can we "see" them? What does it take to study black holes? What happens if you disturb a black hole? What happens when two black holes collide? Will Einstein's theory of gravitation continue to prevail in decades to come?
- Whispers for the Cosmos Learn more about how radio astronomers use computers to analyze huge amounts of data in an attempt to answer questions such as: Is space really empty? What lies between the stars? Can molecules, including those we're made out of, form in space? How are stars born? What determines the shapes of galaxies?
