The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has
online resources for all topics astronomy-related - whether you
dream of becoming an astrophysicist or just wonder about how
astronauts live on the International Space Station (ISS), there is
something for everyone! For those interested in interstellar space
travel, you can wander
through Mars using recordings from the actual NASA Curiosity rover.
If you are more interested
in what it takes to become an astronaut, or the amazing feats of
engineering that allow us to
travel to outer space, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center has a YouTube
channel offers virtual field
trips taking you on a journey to explore topics, as well as others.
If you want even more spacerelated videos, NASA has a free online TV
channel where they show everything from ISS in-flight
interviews with astronauts to live views of our planet from the ISS.
For more hands-on learning,
NASA Space Place offers educational games, activities, and articles
to inspire your learning of
space. If you are looking for a non-technology-based astronomy
activity, and you live in a
suburban or rural area, try out stargazing – you can even bring a
friend, as long as you make
sure to stay a safe 6 feet apart at all times. Now is a great time
to explore astronomy and space
flight through NASA’s many engaging and informative resources!
If you’re looking for a way to connect and have fun with others
during your leisure time, why not try out a board or card game?

If you don’t have any board games, live alone, or want to play a
game with friends far away, try using a free online board game
service like Board Game Arena or Tabletopia!
