This lesson is about cleanroom technology and accompanies the Genesis mission cleanroom video, Cleanroom Technology: NASA Genesis Mission, available on the Genesis outreach Web site. Learners will understand the conditions that are necessary for the... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

This is a lesson about the Genesis mission. Learners are provided background information about the Genesis mission and the three basic types of solar wind that are being detected by the Genesis Ion Monitor (GIM) and Genesis Electron Monitor (GEM).

Audience: High school

This is an extension activity to "DAWN: Find a Meteorite." Learners will use a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) to look at a piece of the meteorite and try to determine if it has the Widemenstatten texture, chondrules, and/or a unique chemical... (View More)

This is a lesson about radiation and the various sources of radiation that a spacecraft may encounter in its journey. Learners will calculate their annual exposure to high-energy radiation, identify sources of high-energy radiation, and explain why... (View More)
