The Tree of Life
"We envisage the Tree of Life being used by those interested in locating information about a particular group of organisms, by biologists seeking identification keys, figures, phylogenetic trees, and other systematic information for a group of organisms, and by educators teaching about organismal diversity. The ToL project was originally designed for biologists. However, given the response of non-biologists to the project, including middle and high school students, we are encouraging authors to include information of interest to non-biologists."

Astronomy Pictures of the Day
Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.

Bad Astronomy
As much fun as the movies are to review and the news is to analyze, it's the everyday misconceptions that to me are the heart and soul of Bad Astronomy. We learn a lot from school and our parents, but a lot of what fills our brain is ``common knowledge'', things we seem to accumulate out of thin air. Everyone knows that you can stand an egg on end on the first day of spring... or can you? Of course toilets flush the other way in the southern hemisphere... don't they? It's these types of concepts that got these pages started in the first place. A lot of what we ``know'' about astronomy really just isn't right. These pages are my humble attempt to set the record-- and your brain-- straight about the world's real oldest profession.
