View Resource Mini-Magnetospheric Plasma Propulsion (M2P2)

This site, hosted by the University of Washington's Earth and Space Sciences Program, discusses an advanced plasma propulsion system that will enable spacecraft to attain unprecedented speeds, with minimal energy and mass requirements. The high efficiency attained by the system is due to its utilization of the energy from the solar wind to provide the enhanced thrust.

View Resource Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics

This site, created by Tom Roger of Intuitor.com, is dedicated to describing the poor physics that can be found in many movies. It includes general discussions of common movie mistakes, with simple but thorough discussions of the physics, and reviews of movies. There are also resources for instructors wishing to use movie physics in their classes. The movies are rated from good physics to...

View Resource Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) is funded by the Office of Science for the United States Department of Energy (DoE) with strong support from the City of Newport News, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the United States Congress. As a user facility for scientists worldwide, its primary mission is to conduct basic research of the atom?s nucleus at the quark level. T...

View Resource Fear of Physics: Position, Velocity and Acceleration

These web pages display and explain the position, velocity and acceleration of an object moving in one dimension. The user is able to experiment with the initial conditions of two objects and see how they move through motion diagrams. Note that, because this is one dimensional motion, the author does not consider the vector nature of the velocity and acceleration.

View Resource Physical Science Activity Manual

This web page provides a collection of high school physical science lesson plans designed using the Learning Cycle pedagogical model. In this model, students first engage in hands-on activities before being introduced to new terms or textbook materials. The cycle culminates in the application of new knowledge to a unique situation (usually a lab activity). Most of the experiments use very...
