NASA HEAT Resources

Curated by scientists, engineers, and educators from NASA and our co-investigating institutions, the resources in this database have been chosen because they have proven to be highly effective at engaging a variety of learners in heliophysics content and in NASA science. All resources have been tested and vetted by educators in the field. Resources are still being collected and will be added to the database after passing NASA HEAT’s review process.

In this image of the Sun, the areas of greatest intensity appear almost white, while the darker red areas indicate less intensity.
