Ground Control

We are happy to present a set of activities, resources, and research experiences which build on data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Our materials allow your students to explore a wide variety of astronomical objects, from asteroids in our own Solar System to the most distant quasars ever observed, using the same high-quality data employed by professional astronomers.

Voyages was not designed as a direct instruction resource. Instead, our aim is to provide the pathways and supporting resources needed for students to experience discovery on their own or in small groups.



The Sloan Digital Sky Surveys are multinational collaborations. We have chosen a simple star ranking system to denote the general difficulty level of the activity.
