SMAS has been a proud NASA Space Place Partner since 2004. In 2018, Space Place transferred its articles division. SMAS will continue to publish NASA's space and Earth science articles, now located on our Night Sky Network page.

The articles from 2004 through 2018 were provided by NASA Space Place, and SMAS thanks them for their great support of our outreach programs throughout the years. With articles, activities, crafts, games, and lesson plans, NASA Space Place encourages everyone to get excited about science and technology. Visit to explore space and Earth science!

SMAS was honored by NASA Space Place for its outstanding community outreach programs.

The Space Place Articles are pdf files.
