Great Web Freebies – NASA TV

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Florida -- The Delta II 7925 rocket carrying NASA's Phoenix Mars lander lifts off amid billows of smoke from Pad 17A at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 5:26 a.m. EDT on 2007-08-04. Phoenix will land in icy soils near the north polar, permanent ice cap of Mars and explore the history of the water in these soils and any associated rocks, while monitoring polar climate. Landing on Mars is planned in May 2008 on arctic ground where a mission currently in orbit, Mars Odyssey, has detected high concentrations of ice just beneath the top layer of soil.Image via WikipediaCool Factor

I’m a huge sci-fi fanatic. Books, movies, comics, I don’t care. I’m addicted to the concept of us in space. That’s why I think NASA TV is simply one of the coolest sites on the web. They’ve got the real stuff, as well as some artistic animations that rival Lucasfilm. (Interesting site there at Lucasfilm Ltd…)

You can check out the fantastic stuff coming out of the Phoenix Mars mission. That’s Phoenix taking off over there to the right.

Or maybe you want to check out some other past missions.

I guess you might even be interested in what NASA plans to do in the future.

Find images, interactive features, audio and video podcasts, blogs and an encyclopedia of NASA-specific information in their Multimedia area.
