Speaking of resources at NASA, a fellow Scouter sent the following note to
the U.S. Scouting Service Project that I want to share with all of you.
This Scouter has helped develop a set of pages on the NASA site that are
designed to help Scouts with Space related merit badges.

Dear Fellow Scout,
I would like to alert you to a new resource for astronomy. It is the
Web site for the upcoming NASA Genesis mission, which will capture and
Earth samples of solar wind.
At the Web site you and your Scouts can find lots of information about the
mission and its science, as you would expect. There is also a site specific
Scouts (Boy and Girl) which can assist Boy Scouts in earning either the
Exploration or the Astronomy merit badge. There are single-page fact sheets
many topics in astronomy, a careers in aerospace section, a model
print and build, historical biographies, and many other resources.
We encourage you to take a look at the site. You can find the home page at
>From there, you can get directly to the Scout materials by clicking on
and Activities on the top navigation bar. The badge requirements are
and are only a click away from appropriate resources.
Please send us feedback so we can make the Web site even more useful to Boy
Thanks for your interest in opening the world of science to boys.
