The Contingent Universe

DESCRIPTION: The third of a group of pages on Astronomy (one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in astronomy and astrophysics education. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to general resources in astronomy and astrophysics from A to L, and from M to Z, and links to resources in Observational Astronomy, the study of Stars and Galaxies, and the pursuit of Amateur Astronomy.

KEYWORDS: astronomy; astrophysics; cosmos; education; space; universe

We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our back and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made, or only just happened.

Mark Twain
