USGS EROS Education and Outreach
The USGS and Science Education provides you with tools to explore Earth science issues. What's New, What's Happening features current and upcoming science events.

NASA Landsat Education
Our goal is to enable you to access and use the entire Landsat Program's data, imagery, and associated science content for your own purposes.

Geomorphology from Space (Grades 9-12)
A gallery of images acquired by the Multispectral Scanner (MSS) on Landsat 1, 2, and 3, the Return Beam Vidicon (RBV) on Landsat 3, and the Thematic Mapper (TM) on Landsat 4 and 5.

NASA Kids Page
Games, art, stories, and activities about space exploration.

USGS Ecosystems
Ecological stories and information.

USGS Education
Educational resources from the U.S. Geological Survey.

Windows to the Universe
Documents, images, movies, animations, and data sets that explore the Earth and Space sciences and the historical and cultural ties between science, exploration, and the human experience.

Goddard Space Flight Center Education Programs
Information about aeronautics research, exploration systems, space operations, and science education programs.

NASA Earth Knowledge Acquired by Middle School Students (EarthKAM)
High-quality photographs from Earth taken from the International Space Station.

Planetary Geodynamics Laboratory
Research done by the LTP, including studies of terrestrial planets such as Mars, Mercury, and Earth.

U.S. Geological Survey

U.S. Geological Survey
As an unbiased, multi-disciplinary science organization that focuses on biology, geography, geology, geospatial information, and water, the USGS is dedicated to the timely, relevant, and impartial study of the landscape, our natural resources, and the natural hazards that threaten us.

Land Remote Sensing (LRS) Program
The fundamental goal of the Land Remote Sensing (LRS) Program is to provide the Federal Government and the public with a primary source of remotely sensed data and applications and to be a leader in defining the future of land remote sensing, nationally and internationally.

Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center
EROS was established in 1971 to receive, process, and distribute data from NASA Landsat satellites, as well as aerial photographs gathered for the USGS and other agencies. The data management, systems development, and research field center is located near Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA. Also see: An Idea that Worked - .pdf (251 KB)

EROS Image Gallery
A collection of images that record events of historic significance, beautiful sights, or images that stir the imagination. Downloads available.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration

National Aeronautics and Space Administration
NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research. Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many great scientific and technological feats in air and space.

NASA Landsat Science
The Landsat Project is a series of Earth-observing satellite missions jointly managed by NASA and the USGS. Since 1972, Landsat satellites have collected information about Earth from space. This science, known as remote sensing, has matured with the Landsat Project.

NASA Landsat 8
The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) is the future of Landsat satellites. It will continue to obtain valuable data and imagery to be used in agriculture, education, business, science, and government.

Landsat Legacy
The NASA Landsat Project Science Office is teaming with the USGS and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Library to create an archive of essential Landsat documentation, including technical, policy, and science related documents with an emphasis on internal technical papers.
