Mission to Space is a site chock full of information, from the basic to the highly controversial regarding space and everything to do with and about space!
You are greeted on the home page by a set of the latest headlines, starting with the current date and covering a few days previous. There are sections on space travel, ongoing projects by NASA, and an extensive resource section on astronomy.
The site is well laid out and is easy to navigate. The information is presented in an easy to understand fashion, but will appeal to space buffs of all ages.Picking a subsubject on the page gets you a more extensive list of news articles sorted by date. The site also features a search engine, making finding even more resources easy and quick without having to open another window. You can subscribe to the ezine as well, which enables a subscriber to have the high quality new late breaking news of space delivered directly to your in box. Each area of interest on the site has expert coverage, which gives a wide range of subcategories within each subject. Membership isn’t required, and this is truly one of the nicest sites of this nature I’ve come across lately. The only thing which would make this better would be audio files from NASA and the addition of a detailed star chart for those who want to see out of the ordinary constellations.The site does offer an rss feed, however, and for those who like using rss’s, this is a definite plus!When you open a news article, you are presented with the article plus some extras. Links to related archived stories are provided, as well as related sites tovisit on the web. The news articles are updated on the site daily, and the site is related to a magazine, New Scientist, which comes out weekly. From what I’ve seen, the web content closely matches that of the hard copy edition of the magazine-a feature far lacking in a lot of sister sites.
