Welcome to Beyond the Solar System!

Many new astronomy learners, students and adults alike, are unfamiliar with the universe beyond the solar system. The Beyond the Solar System Professional Development Project offers opportunities for deepening content knowledge and exploring strategies for teaching and learning about current scientific models and evidence for the origin and evolution of our universe of galaxies. The project is an initiative of the NASA Universe Education Forum at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, as part of its mandate to foster public understanding of NASA's exciting astronomy and space science research.
