Summary:"Created by the Space Telescope Science Institute, this website provides access to fun and engaging learning activities about astronomy, all of which live up to the website's name. The Institute also happens to oversee the grant administration, planning, scheduling, and public outreach activities for the Hubble Space Telescope, so it makes sense that they would have some rather nice materials. While the site has a number of useful areas, perhaps the strongest element of the site is the """"""""Amazing Space"""""""" section. Here, visitors can learn about the inner workings of telescopes, read their in, house publication """"""""The Star Witness"""""""", and take in sights of black holes, comets, galaxies, and gravity at work. Educators should not overlook the """"""""Teaching Tools"""""""" area of the site, as they will want to look through their classroom activities, graphic organizers, and reading guides."
