- Nature and Science
- I'm not sure who maintains this site, but it's extremely useful (if
somewhat overwhelming at times).
- The Telson Spur
- "The Snark-Hunter's Page". If what you're looking for isn't
here, then you're chasing a
chimaera. This page is mind boggling.
- Amateur Astronomy
- Jeff Bondono's page - a full and fascinating resource site.
- Amateur Astronomy Observers Log
- "Web-based database of uploaded observation notes
by amateur astronomers. Anyone can use the database, viewing observations
(optionally filtered on the following fields: object, type of object,
constellation, and observer) or adding their own
- Galileo Space Probe
- Links to the latest information and related resources for those
interested in astronomy and spacecraft.
- Hubble Space
- An information page with links to the latest information
and images from the HST. Links to Hale/Bopp Comet information. Also links
to other related astronomy information such as the Shoemaker/Levy Comet.
- Mars Information on the
- NASA's guide to Mars-related sites, including the Pathfinder and Global Surveyor Home
- Mir Space Station
- "To celebrate the launching of NASA's space shuttle
Atlantis, the Maximov Web site has launched a MIR Space Station page with
great photos and a text detailing the history, design and current
activities of the station by science writer Mark W. Curtiss." And
however much longer Mir is up, this page still is.
Resources for Astronomers
- Huge site, with links to a wide variety of resources. Indispensable.
- Planetary Studies Foundation
- A non-profit educational organization devoted to promoting the study
of planetary science and astronomy. Site includes: articles, tutorials,
and interviews of interest to the amateur astronomy and space exploration
community, information about meteorites, and listings of PSF Upcoming
Events (trips, public speaker programs, planetarium programs, observatory
- SETI Institute
- Details of the institute, its programmes (especially Project Phoenix),
events, gift shop, educational activites, etc.
- "SETI@home is an experiment in massively distributed computing. You
too can let your screen-saver function as part of a program to detect (or
not) signs of extraterrestrial intelligence."
- Archives, news, jobs, conferences, etc. Messy when viewed with a
- New Scientist
- Of the main science journals, this is the most accessible to the
lay reader. The site contains various articles and details of the
- Science Magazine
- From the American Association for the Advancement of
- Scientific American
- Unfortunately it's a badly designed page, in
that it's very difficult to use with a text-based browser.
- Editions numeriques, scientifiques, et universitaires.
- Darwin &
- Offers books, debates, W-WW links, & Darwin's complete works, and
many other on-line texts. Very much recommended.
- Einstein in

site remains, and provides a broad range of information and links to
- Albert Einstein Online
- Maintained by S. Morgan Friedman. A huge site, offering everything
you've ever wanted to know about Einstein (and probably quite a bit that
- Andrew McNab's page devoted to Isaac Newton - links to biographies,
archives, and other relevant sites.
- Isaac Newton Links
- From the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences.
- Huge site, offering resources related to the study of human nature in
various disciplines. Has a particularly full set of links to relevant
- The World-Wide Web Virtual Library page, maintained by Dave Stevens.
A large site, offering sections on
newsgroups, bulletin boards,conferences, societies, e-publications, etc.
- PSYC SITE
- "Science of Psychology Resources". Maintained
by Ken Stange and Tara Bambrick. Extremely full guide and gateway to
psychology (and related) resources on the Internet. Unfortunately badly
and Java-gimmicked; I've linked to the menu frame of the first page, but
those with text-based browsers should be prepared for a painful time.
- Science as Culture
- Information about the e-mail list, on-line papers, links, Process
Press, and more.
(For Oxford museums see the Local Links
page, and for other, mainly non-science museums, see the Libraries &
Museums section of the Academic

Details of the Museum, its collection, exhibitions, etc.
