All about Guatemala
See the color and beauty of the "Land of Eternal Spring".

GUATEMALA is the "Land of Eternal Spring - a small, but very rich and VERY, VERY complex country...The only Central American country where time traveling is possible." GUATEMALAWEB is an ideal starting point for learning about Mayan archaeology and Guatemala's abundant bird life.

Alliance to Rescue Civilisation
The Alliance to Rescue Civilisation: "Because the most important reason for the space program is human survival."

"The Alliance to Rescue Civilization (ARC) was first conceived by Robert Shapiro in his book Planetary Dreams: The Quest to Discover Life Beyond Earth. Shapiro's close colleague at New York University, William E. Burrows, saw the wisdom of ARC and became the leading proponent of the idea. This website was designed to allow those who share Shapiro's and Burrows' vision to exchange information and ideas that will advance this important mission. Please review these pages. Join this effort to help focus the human space program on its most important purpose, human survival."

Alspach's Mathematics & Poker Page
Poker: mathematical odds

I have made the link to the odds in seven card stud, which is my game, so I can show my son some of the reaons why he loses to me, but if you go to the home page you can see a discussion of odds for all poker variants.

The site is the work of Brian Alspach, Professor Emeritus, Department of Mathematics & Statistics, Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada.

Astrobiology Magazine
Astrobiology Magagine's official website

Astrobiology Magagine has been published monthly since 2000.

"Many of the questions posed by astrobiology are the subjects of intense debate within the scientific community. How did life originate? What kind of life forms should we expect to find on other worlds? Is there life on Mars, or on Jupiter's moon Europa? How will we know for certain when we've found evidence of life on other worlds?"

Astronomy
"Curious about Astronomy? Ask an Astronomer!"

A superb Cornell University website:

"Since they first stepped out of the proverbial cave, humans have always been intrigued by the beauty and wonder of the night sky and the almost infinite possibilities of space. Indeed, astronomy is both the closest and the most distant science from common experience. Every curious person who gazes at the night sky becomes an astronomer, and yet the things we see in outer space are wholly outside our earthbound experience. That is why astronomy is both the oldest and the youngest science of them all. Oldest because almost every ancient culture, understanding the need to predict the coming of the seasons, became expert at tracking and predicting the motions of the sun, moon and planets. Many of the prehistoric monuments that still exist today are aligned in some astronomical direction or another. The Egyptian Pyramids, Stonehenge, and a panoply of Native American, Mayan and Aztec temples all are complex astronomical observatories designed for direction-finding or the prediction of the planets and seasons. And yet astronomy is a young science, too. Only in the last century or so have we truly come to understand the size and age of the universe we live in; only in the last fifty or sixty years have we truly begun to understand the physics which drives the universe and makes exotic objects like black holes, neutron stars and a menagerie of other astronomical oddities possible. And finally, only in the last few years have we been able to find planets in orbit around other stars and the real possibility of life beyond the Earth. It's no surprise, then, that students, writers of fiction and nonscientists in general are so interested in this particular scientific endeavor. That's why we, as astronomers, are so anxious to "get the word out," as they say. And that's the purpose of this site. When you send an astronomy question to us, it will be forwarded to one of the participating scientists here at Cornell. Most of us are graduate students studying for PhDs in astronomy, and all of us are actively involved in astronomy research, but we love to take time out from our work to share our knowledge with those who are curious. We hope you enjoy browsing our site!"

Central America Travelogue
Exploring Central America on local transport.

An interesting and sometimes quirky travelogue through Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras & Belize, travelling on local buses and staying at two-star hotels.

Charles Darwin
Darwin Day Celebration - 12 February 2009

Darwin's 200th Birthday will occur on February 12, 2009; it will also be the 150th Anniversary of the publication of his famous book, On The Origin of Species. So, together we can evolve a truly international Celebration to express gratitude for the enormous benefits that scientific knowledge, acquired through human curiosity and ingenuity, has contributed to the advancement of humanity. The objective of Darwin Day Celebration is to encourage existing institutions worldwide, such as municipalities, public and private schools, colleges and universities, libraries, museums, churches, private organizations and individuals to celebrate Science and Humanity every year, on, or near, February 12, Darwin's birthday!

Dan Dare - Pilot of the Future
a website devoted to the hero of the Eagle comic

Is there a need for yet another website devoted to Colonel Daniel McGregor Dare?

The Eagle Comic was reprinted around the world, in many formats and many languages, yet information concerning this phenomenon has never been assembled in one place before. This site will offer a look at these reprints by country and try to define the print runs and years of publication, and any other oddities and affiliated themes that turn up, such as the "Great US Stamp Mystery", and the French version of the Girl Comic.

And if your heart can still bear the excitement, you can browse through the various galleries that are now on-line, ranging from space-themed jigsaw puzzles to Dan Dare memorabilia.

There are numerous gaps in our knowledge on these various themes, so in part this site is also to encourage others to help fill these gaps. If anyone has additional information that they would like to submit on any of these subjects we actively encourage them to get in touch with us - we will print it and full credit will be given.

Above all, please ENJOY your visit.

Deep Space Probes
A status report on all deep space probes

"Planetary probes have a specific mission: to explore the surface or vicinity of a planet in the Solar System. Not surprisingly, Mars remains the most popular target. Other deep space probes explore the Sun, other planets, or are on their way out of the Solar System.

"Even as you read this, there are several man-made probes serving as our remote eyes throughout the Solar System. Some perform useful and valuable observations on a daily basis, such as the Solar and Heliocentric Observatory, monitoring the Sun 24 hours a day. Others are living relics from the dawn of space exploration, including the longest-living space probe ever made, NASA's Pioneer 6. Well, maybe this isn't exactly Arthur C. Clarke's vision of the year 2001, with a nuclear-powered manned spaceship en route towards Jupiter, but we are getting there... at least some of our faithful remote outposts are out there already, as a first step towards what I hope will be our eventual conquest of the Solar System and beyond.

"These pages provide summary information on all "live" probes that operate away from the immediate vicinity of the Earth. In other words, probes that are either going somewhere, or are "looking up", not down.

"Please note that this 'portal' is the result of the efforts of one person who's not in any way associated with the space agencies whose missions are featured here. One consequence is that the information is not always up-to-date. For instance, the 'Last reported contact' field contains information about the last contact I heard about (from an e-mail newsletter, a visit to the probe's Web site, etc.) and if it shows a date months in the past, that doesn't necessarily mean that the probe has not been heard from by its operators in the intervening time!"

Edward Governo: Historian of Things That Never Were
Links to history that never happened

I can barely bring myself to tell you what this site is about.

As I type this William Shatner's immortal words to a group of persistent Trekkies - "Get a life!" - are ringing in my ears.

This site is divided into television, movies, books, games and comics and in each case (and there are more than 300 cases) what you're looking at is some fan's timeline for developments in an entirely imaginary world.

Star Trek is there, of course. ("...Federation obtains advanced warp technology from the representatives of the Kelvan Empire in Andromeda Galaxy, after they briefly hijack the USS Enterprise. The Kelvans settle a class M planet near the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy, and a robot ship is dispatched to Kelva with greetings from the Federation...")

And:

* Dr Who

* Highlander

* Robotech

* Gundam

* The X-Files

* Babylon 5

* Twin Peaks

* Battlestar Galactica

* Xena Warrior Princes

* Buffy the Vampire Slayer

* Bonanza

* Stargate

* Dragonball Z

and so on and on and on and on...

EinsteinLight
Relativity in brief... or in detail.

"Einstein's theory of special relativity includes electricity and magnetism in a simple, logical extension of the relativity of Galileo and Newton. Its conclusions, including time dilation, length contraction, and E=mc2 have changed profoundly our ideas of time and space, matter and energy. These multimedia modules give a brief overview of relativity - they present the main ideas. Inevitably, you will have questions. So the related links give more complete explanations, at levels with or without mathematics."
