The Search for ET

Internet Links

The following World Wide Web sites offer information relevant to your project. Depending on your particular research interest, some sites will obviously be more relevant than others. To optimize the efforts of your web search, each site has been described so that you might judge its usefulness in advance. As you proceed with your World Wide Web search, document your progress (both successes and failures) using the Web Site Trail sheet.

1.

The Search For Extra Solar Planets

This is a nice introduction and tutorial. Go all the way through and revisit often!

2.

CPEP - THE PARTICLE ADVENTURE

Depending upon your study, this is an outstanding site for basic particles which are actually studied within the relm of relativity. If you are going to use ChamberWorks, or Fermilab's data you will want to start here to get an idea of what a muon is, etc. Good site in general!

3.

Making Relativity Real -

A derivation of time dilation and a good example!

4.

Henderson's Time Dilation Shock Wave Simulation

You can gather some basic data from our own master Mr. Henderson's Javascript on Time Dilation. This is a great place to begin gathering data for your project.

5.

Henderson's Length Contraction Shock Wave Simulation

You can gather some basic data from our own master Mr. Henderson's Javascript on Time Dilation. This is a great place to begin gathering data for your project.

6.

The "Standard Model" -

A CERN introduction to the Standard Model. CERN is a high energy physics accelerator lab in Geneva Switzerland.

7.

 

Making Relativity Real

A derivation of time dilation and a good example!

8.

RelLab program Tutorial and help!

The Psychology Department at Carnegie Mellon. This is probably a link for when you get into looking for data. Why the psychology department at Carnegie Mellon has a summary of Extrasolar Planets...I don't know.

9.

The Light Cone

This is an indepth look at Relativity. Look here when you are an expert!

10.

Introduction to the Relativity FAQ

This could be a great resources of questions about Relativity...ask your own!

11.

Introduction to Special Relativity

A cartoon and mathematical look at relativity!

12.

The Time Dilation - what does it mean ?

A good look at Time Dilation and the Twin Paradox

13.

Physics 7: Relativity and Cosmology

A well organized site on relativity!

14.

Albert Einstein Online

This is a site that ends in .com. Reason to be concerned, but it does have great links. Definitely play around with this link!

15.

 

Online Physics Courses

 

This site has a lot of info. If you can't find it in your text, look here.

16.

Yahoo physics search engine

The title speaks for itself...search!

17.

 

The Mad Scientist Network

This is a thorough cite to ask questions about physics, medicine, biophysics, etc.

18.

Many Ask a Scientist/Math Opportunities -

Listed by New Jersey, this is a networking infrastructure in education. This is the place to look for some experts!
