The Cosmic and Heliospheric Learning Center was developed by NASA to increase the general public's interest in cosmic and heliospheric science. This expansive site discusses the basics of astrophysics including energetic particles and magnetic fields. Students can learn all about galactic and anomalous cosmic rays as well as solar winds and coronal holes. With the help of its handy astronomical glossary and the Ask Us section providing informative background information about physics and astronomy, students can easily understand the materials presented. The site also supplies users with a valuable History of Cosmic Rays Studies from before 1600 to now.
