The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.

A supplement to "Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere" whose index page is linked at the beginning and the end of the above page. Versions of the model with Spanish or French captions are also available.
