Take off to Jupiter with NASA
Cyberspace meets outerspace at the home page of the planets on NASA's WWW site. By shuttling out to the Jupiter page, you'll have a view that even astronauts will envy. From Jupiter's gassy, cloudy surface to its orbiting satellites, you'll feel like you're actually there. Explore Jupiter's rings and the mysterious Great Red Spot. Exploration of outer space has never been so much fun, and once you've discovered Jupiter, you'll need to choose which planet to fly to next! If you're ready for takeoff to another planet, head on over to http:// stardust.jpl.nasa.gov:80/ planets/ welcome/ jupiter.htm. (This site is no longer available.)

Dear Amy: I'm working on science project and my teacher thought we could use the WWW as a starting place for ideas. My dad says I shouldn't just go anywhere on the Internet, so where do I start? Jason, Arlington, TX.

Dear Jason: My newest favorite starting place is Yahooligans at http://kids.yahoo.com. It's an index and a search engine especially for kids so parents like it, too. You can search for all kinds of science stuff, from airplanes to mockingbirds to weather.

Dear Amy: The only computers we have in our school are really old, and no one in my school knows anything about the Internet. I see on TV that lots of other schools are connected, how can I get my school on the Web? Lenny, Harrisburg, PA.

Dear Lenny: The starting place for getting your school connected to the Web is in your own community. First, find out if any other schools in your town are connected. Ask your parents, a teacher, or your principal to help you in your quest. The public library can always answer questions about who, what, where and how. Other places to start could be a nearby computer store or you can check out the Yellow Pages for an Internet service provider.
