  • The Astro Calculator: If you watch your units, this page makes it easy to do numerical problems in physics, astronomy and astrophysics

  • Digital Sky Survey : The Space Telescope Finding Chart Site

  • NIST: All sorts of scientific databases

  • Orbit Visualization: Animated model of the Solar system with selected asteroid!  Very nice.

  • SIMBAD: Astronomical Bibliographical and Data source.

  • NASA ASTROPHYSICS DATA SYSTEM: Bibliographic search and on-line access to articles (if you are at Gettysburg)

  • Smithsonian Physical Tables: this classic reference source comprises 901 tables of general interest to scientists and engineers, and of particular interest to those involved with physics in its larger sense." The downloadable tables include general physics constants, constants for temperature measurement, the blackbody and its radiant energy, temperature characteristics by material, latent heat, thermal properties of gases, acoustics, geomagnetism, and many more.
