Title: Exploring Life's Origins: A Virtual Exhibition
Url: http://exploringorigins.org/
Publisher: Exploring Origins Project
Description: This visually arresting website is part of a multimedia exhibit at the Museum of Science in Boston, which aims to "use molecular illustration and animation to help describe origins of life research and theories to broad audiences." Visitors should definitely check out the "A Timeline of Life's Evolution" to get oriented to the site. The "Formation of the Moon" is a stunning artist's rendition, as well as is the "Formation of the Solar System". Visitors can drag the red marker on the timeline at the top of the page to reveal certain images of important events in the earth's life history. Moving along, those visitors interested in a more microscopic view of life will enjoy the exhibit "Understanding the RNA World?", where they will find a short narrated animation of RNA folding on the exhibit's homepage. Educators and others who may be interested in downloading any of the videos or animations for educational purposes can do so from the "Resources for Educators" link at the bottom of any of the site's pages.
