Below you will find a vast amount of information regarding comets, space science, and the crash of Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter. The information comes from sources other than STScI.

Some of the resources are quite in-depth, and it is easy to get lost. We suggest that you bookmark this page before you examine each source. That way, should you get lost, you can simply use the bookmark to get back to this list of resources.

Since other parties run these sites, there is no way of guaranteeing their stability. You may occasionally find a site "under construction," or you may find that a site is completely gone. There is no way to control such occurrences because the sites are not controlled by the Space Telescope Science Institute.

This page is only a fraction of the information available throughout the Web. If you do not find what you are looking for here, GO FIND IT!! ( )
