Astronomy and Physics Organizations, Disorganizations, Groups, & Gangs

There are UIT homepages for the various science groups. Also, near to home is the Code 600 page.

For science education, check out the NASA Teacher Resource Center Network, or the more hip science musings of Beakman and Jax, not to be confused with science made stupid. If you are still confused, ask Dr. Science.

The U. Oregon Physics Department. And other web-candy is supplied by this slick spacecraft monitor.

And, of course, what space-based page would be complete without links to Star Wars or Star Trek (including the infamous Captain James T. Kirk Sing-a-long Page!!)

This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune - often the surfeit of our own behavior - we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon and the stars; as if we were villans by necessity, fools by heavenly compulsion, knaves, theieves, and treachers by spherical predominance, drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced obedience of planetary influence.
