BBC Space

BBC Space is part of the British Broadcasting Corporation's Science section. As a news organization, the BBC presents space related items in a news and aggregate format with breaking or latest news in the forefront. Items include web pages, images and videos. While many parts of the Space page have related videos to enjoy, the BBC iPlayer, that plays television programs may not be functional in your area due to rights agreements. Included on the main page and available to all is the very popular astronomy program "The Sky at Night." Hosted by Sir Patrick Moore for 55 years, you'll find episodes going back to 1960. Another excellent resource is the "Stargazing LIVE" section where you'll find star guides, event listings, telescope guides, and even step-by-step instructions for making a telescope. Here you'll also find star maps and applications for mobile devices. The main Space page also has a list of basic external space agency links.
