Science and Technology Facilities Council: Space Resources

The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is an independent, non-departmental public body. It is a science-driven organisation, making it possible for a broad range of scientists to do the highest quality research tackling some of the most fundamental scientific questions. This collection contains resources that can be used in the classroom. They illustrate the STFC's work in areas such as particle physics, astronomy and cosmology. The collection includes information on: * Cassini-Huygens * ExoMars mission * Herschel Telescope * Robotic Telescopes * Venus Express * What is astrobiology? * The Large Hadron Collider * The Search for Gravitational Waves
