European Space Agency (ESA)
The ESA research is conducted on Earth, the solar system, and the universe at large. Includes articles related to astronomy, astrophysics, geology, biotechnology, engineering, and environmental sciences.
National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA)
NASA.gov brings you images, videos and interactive features from the unique perspective of America's space agency. Topics and images range from the earth to our solar system. Earth Science satellites are sending back unprecedented data on Earth's oceans, climate and other features.
National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
From daily weather forecasts, severe storm warnings and climate monitoring to fisheries management, coastal restoration and supporting marine and ocean commerce. NOAA’s dedicated scientists use cutting-edge research and high-tech instrumentation to provide reliable info when they need it.
Science.gov searches over 42 databases and over 2000 selected websites from 14 federal agencies, offering 200 million pages of authoritative U.S. government science information including research and development results. It's a great place to look for governmental reports or research if you're not sure which agencies might be involved.
National Physics Labs
Argonne National Laboratory
Argonne has five major mission areas: conducting basic scientific research to further our understanding of the world, operating national scientific facilities to help advance America's scientific leadership (e.g. Advanced Photon Source), enhancing the nation's energy resources to ensure America's energy future, developing better ways to manage environmental problems, and to assist with national security (e.g. counter the threats of terrorism).
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Established in 1947 on Long Island, Upton, New York, Brookhaven is a multi-program national laboratory operated by Brookhaven Science Associates for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Six Nobel Prizes have been awarded for discoveries made at the Lab.
Scientists at Fermilab carry out research in high-energy and particle physics. They investigate the smallest building blocks of matter separated by the smallest distances that science has ever explored.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with “excellence.” Eleven scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
At LLNL, teams of physicists, chemists, biologists, engineers and other researchers work together to achieve technical innovations and scientific breakthroughs and transform these advances into solutions to nationally important problems (specifically addressing the national security issues of the future).
Los Alamos National Laboratory: National Security Science
Los Alamos National Laboratory is a premier national security research institution, delivering scientific and engineering solutions for the nation's most crucial and complex problems in safety, security, and reliability of the nation's nuclear deterrent.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
This is the Department of Energy’s largest science and energy laboratory. ORNL was established in 1943 as a part of the secret Manhattan Project to pioneer a method for producing and separating plutonium. During the 1950s and 1960s, ORNL became an international center for the study of nuclear energy and related research in the physical and life sciences. Today the laboratory supports the nation with a peacetime science and technology mission.
Stanford Linear Accelerator (SLAC) National Accelerator Laboratory
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is home to a two-mile linear accelerator—the longest in the world. Originally a particle physics research center, SLAC is now a multipurpose laboratory for astrophysics, photon science, accelerator and particle physics research.
