A Comet Impacts Jupiter
Name: gwendolyn williams
Date: 1993 - 1999
Hello, I am gwendolyn williams and I teach high school physical
science last week a very significant event took place on the planet Jupiter.
When school opens in the fall, this event will be some what history, and I am
wondering, if there will be computer based resources that the students might ref er to for references about
this event and some graphics which will be available showing what actually
happened as the comet impacted Jupiter. Please let me know where I might refer
my students for information on this topic. Thanks very much.
There's loads of stuff (text, images, even movies) available if you
have a browser like NCSA Mosaic available. If you do, here are some "places"
(URLs) to go:
These are sites maintained by NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab.
(The second was set up as a "mirror" of the first to handle the heavy demand
made at the time of the impacts.) These also provide "links" to many other sites
all over the world.
Two other good staring points:
The SEDS home page has a page for the Shoemaker/Levy comet, and the last URL is
for Astro Web, a great place to begin a search for anything astronomy-related.
