*Hey...I really dig the view these cartoon kids have got!  smile

Includes:  Games, Learn More, Activities, Special  Events.

"The Story of a Little Rock on Mars" is adorable -and- very educational. 

Fantastic site all around.

*I see your point, Rik.  Although I wish the internet and a cool site like this for kids were available when I was a child.  I would have been doing EVERYTHING at this site.  wink  Magazines (for an older audience) and models (build your own), slides and posters, were about all we had in the 1970s.  That was better than nothing, of course (don't want to sound too ungrateful).

JPL, sure.  ESA would be great as bosses, too.  Someone's got to take the lead, because NASA sure has fumbled the ball.

I've referred the web site to my cousin in Maine; she has a 5-year-old.  Don't know if he's interested in space stuff...but it could be a start!
