Full Description
Dino Doom
time icon 320
language icon English
The Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, which occurred 66 mya, caused the mass extinction of nearly 75% of the plant and animal species on Earth. This event is marked by a thin layer of sediment which can be found throughout the world in marine and terrestrial rocks. The boundary clay shows high levels of iridium, which is rare on Earth but abundant in asteroids.

Apollo 50th Anniversary
10
English
July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon and we are going back! In celebration of 50 years of Apollo we've designed a visualization that explores landing sites of six Apollo missions. Explore each landing site in virtual reality, watch video from the mission, and learn details about each mission.
InSight Experience
10
English
InSight, short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport, is a Mars lander designed to investigate the interior of Mars: its crust, mantle, and core. Explore and control NASA's latest Mars lander with this interactive visualization.
Phases of Matter
English
This visualization is a simulation used in the Habitable Worlds course. The visualization demonstrates the phase change diagram for water, carbon dioxide, and methane on Earth, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Users can modify the pressure and temperature of each planetary body to investigate their impact on the phase diagram.
Stellar Nursery
English
This visualization is a simulation used in the Habitable Worlds course. The visualization generates a star (click new star) based on mass (click and drag in the star field to generate different mass stars) and follows the life cycle of the star through time. The star is plotted on an HR Diagram, generates a bar graph of elements produced through nuclear fusion, and generates the stars spectral signature in both emission and absorption line.
Atmospheric Chamber
English
This visualization is a simulation used in the Habitable Worlds course. The visualization contains a variety of atmospheric compounds to choose from and tools to explore the partial pressure and wavelength. Click and drag to expand the graph to investigate the emission/absorption lines produced under a variety of conditions.
Craters of Earth
English
This visualization is an interactive map used in the Dino Doom VFT. This visualization contains clickable global locations of meteor impacts on Earth and pop up informational boxes. Contained within these informational boxes is a tool to measure the diameter of the crater.
First Complex Life
English
This visualization is a 360-degree virtual field trip used in the Search for Life unit. The visualization explores what is believed to be the first complex life in the rock record.
First Signs of Life
English
This visualization is a 360-degree virtual field trip used in the Search for Life unit. the visualization explores what is believed to be the first signs of life in the rock record, stromatolites.
Geologic Timeline
English
This visualization is a simulation used in the Habitable Worlds course. The visualization contains key events in time in a scrollable format. Click and drag to expand the timeline and investigate narrower windows of time.
Hell Creek Mammals
English
This visualization is a 360-degree virtual field trip used in the Dino Doom VFT. This visualization contains two views of a Triceratops dig area and two views of a mammal site nearby. A gigapan at the mammal site provides an opportunity to observe mammal bone fossil fragments left behind.
Hell Creek Trike Dig
English
This visualization is a 360-degree virtual field trip used in the Dino Doom VFT. This visualization contains three views of a Triceratops dig area and incorporates labeling of the dig area. Labels point to the K-Pg (Cretaceous – Paleogene) boundary and the rock ages surrounding the boundary.
Mars Rover Sites
English
This visualization is a 360-degree virtual field trip used in the Red Rocks VFT. This visualization contains three views of Mars from three different rover sites. Images collected from each rover are also embedded. An opportunity to explore for iron oxide is also embedded in imagery.
OSIRIS-REx Timeline
20
English
The OSIRIS-REx Mission seeks answers to questions that are central to the human experience: Where did we come from? What is our destiny? OSIRIS-REx is has arrived at Bennu, a carbon-rich asteroid that records the earliest history of our Solar System, and will be bringing a piece of it back to Earth. OSIRIS-REx will determine Bennu’s physical and chemical properties, which will be critical for future scientists to know when developing an impact mitigation mission. Explore the Bennu mission timeline, mission instruments, and asteroid operations.
Shadow Analogy
English
This visualization is a used to demonstrate distance and size of a large light source such as the Sun will determine the size of the shadow the moon will cast upon Earth in the Path of Totality Lesson. This visualization uses a baseball and a light bulb as an analogy to the Sun, Moon, Earth system.
Shadow Sizer
English
This visualization is a widget tool used in the Path of Totality lesson. This visualization contains a dark circle and a slider that can be used for measurement of an object on screen in kilometers.

Strange Ripples in Space
45
English
Students will study certain examples of wave phenomena that occur in space and some that occur on the earth. They will also review wave properties and the fact that mechanical waves need a medium, while electromagnetic waves do not. While studying a sonic boom, they will make an observation of the number of sounds an airplane makes during a sonic boom by watching a video of an airplane. While studying They will identify the occurrence of a sound based on reading data from a graph. They will "hear" the sounds of the sun through a process called sonification.
