CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research)

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.


Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory advances the understanding of the fundamental nature of matter and energy by providing leadership and resources for qualified researchers to conduct basic research at the frontiers of high energy physics and related disciplines.


The Office of Public Outreach (OPO)for the Space Telescope Science Institute, which created this Web site, finds innovative ways to share Hubble's remarkable discoveries with the public. OPO exists asa unique blend of communications professionals and scientists working together to prepare and disseminate the photographs and animations seen in the news... as well as posters, slide shows, exhibits, and educational products in print and electronic formats.

NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)

NASA's vision: To reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind.
