National Women's Hall of Fame

The National Women's Hall of Fame features American women who have made significant national or global contributions in the fields of arts, athletics, business, education, government, the humanities, philanthropy, and science. I made my way to the list of inductees and just went down the list. Many of the names I've heard all of my life, and others I've never heard mentioned. What a learning experience. Wonderful, wonderful, absolutely wonderful!

The Nine Planets

Developed by Bill Arnett, The Nine Planets is an overview of the history, mythology, and current scientific knowledge of the planets, moons and other objects in our solar system. Each page features text and NASA's images. Some have sounds and movies and most provide references to additional related information. Arnett's The Nine Planets is a delightful multimedia tour of the solar system:one star, eight planets, and more.

Founded by North Carolina State University Professor Marshall Brain in 1998, the site has since grown to be an award-winning online resource for millions of people of all ages. From car engines to search engines, from cell phones to stem cells, and thousands of subjects in between, HowStuffWorks has it covered. In addition to comprehensive articles, helpful graphics and informative videos walk you through every topic clearly, simply and objectively. Its a wonderful place to get lost!
