100,000 Stars is a new interactive from Google that is an amazing visualization of the universe. It can only be viewed in Chrome. I liked “taking a tour,” which you can click on in the upper left hand corner.

I’m adding it to The Best Images Taken In Space.

The Best Resources For Learning About Felix Baumgartner’s Jump From The Edge Of Space

Science Friday, the popular NPR program, has an amazing amount of resources for teachers, and everybody else, online.

Interactive: how much water is used in the production of different foods? is a useful….interactive from The Guardian. It’s design is somewhat unique.

Google Maps can now take you on underwater tours! It sounds like it’s not quite yet ready for prime-time, but you can read all about its expansion to well-known areas beneath the sea.
