Grades 8 – 12
NASA navigates throughout the solar system and beyond, revealing the mysteries of the universe. In this workbook, you’ll use basic mathematics concepts to explore space navigation. We’ll use simplified, real-world examples supplied by navigation engineers to delve deep into the exciting world of space exploration. As NASA goes forward to the Moon and journeys on to Mars, maybe you could be the one to plan our next big mission!
Grades K – 3
Satellite-aided search and rescue is a collaborative effort involving a number of national and international organizations. The international Cospas-Sarsat Programme was founded in 1979 to provide timely, accurate and reliable location data to first responders. The U.S. serves on the Cospas-Sarsat Council and a number of U.S. agencies are instrumental in ensuring the robustness of the search and rescue network. NASA lends its expertise in technology development through their Search and Rescue (SAR) office. NASA’s SAR office is based out of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and is a project of their Exploration and Space Communications projects division. Programmatic oversight is provided by NASA’s Space Communications and Navigation program office at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC.
