NASA Education has launched a new website for students and educators about NASA’s microgravity laboratories on Earth and on the International Space Station.

Visit the new site to learn about the types of platforms that researchers use to study the effects of the microgravity environment. Watch and download video and multimedia features. Answer the question: What Is Microgravity? Shoot some hoops and test your basketball skills in gravity and microgravity in Free Fall Ball. Build a Do-It-Yourself podcast with video and audio clips from NASA. And stay in touch about opportunities for students and educators.

Educators can find lesson plans for the classroom and keep students in-the-know with up-to-date information about research on the International Space Station.
