In this activity, students create colour images from satellite data. This allows them to study how different surfaces reflect different wavelengths of light, how coloured images are created using an RGB model, and how band combinations can be chosen to examine a particular landscape effectively.
The Big Telescopes poster links ground and space based telescopes with the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that they are observing and their locations on Earth or in space.
The poster explains how larger telescopes allow scientists to learn more about the early universe and map our own galaxy with...
These are images of some of the European Southern Observatory telescopes and locations. They include:
* View from above ESO's La Silla observation site in the southern part of the Atacama desert, 600 km north of Santiago de Chile. The site is 2,400 metres above sea level, providing excellent observing...
This resource contains stunning images of nebulae, produced by the European Southern Observatory (ESO). The images include:

This resource features five inspiring people who developed Bridget, a six-wheeled ExoMars rover.
Bridget is a prototype of the vehicle that will be the largest and most sophisticated vehicle ever to visit Mars.
Each of the featured scientists describe their role in the space technology company...
This poster looks at the nature of antimatter. One side of the poster discusses Dirac’s prediction and the subsequent discovery of antimatter, in the form of the positron. The difficulty of the storage of antimatter is explained and the use of positrons in medical imaging (PET scanners) is described. The other side...
This poster describes how slicing software can be used to prepare a CAD model for 3D printing. It uses software specific to BeeVeryCreative, but has content applicable to many types of slicing software.
