UNIT | Aquarius & The Oceans 

Module | The Aquarius | Welcome to the Hab
The Aquarius Habitat is a unique science lab; learn what and where the Hab is, why it’s useful for NASA, and what we do down there.
Module | The Oceans | Coral Reefs
Coral reefs cover 25% of the ocean floor but impact the entire world.  Find out why!
Module | The Oceans | Invasive Species

UNIT | Sea To Space

Module | Sea to Space | Under Pressure
Why do your ears pop when you’re flying?  Why do you need air tanks when you dive?  What is pressure, and how does it affect us, both in the air and below the sea?
Module | Sea to Space | ROVs and AUVs
Sometimes a job is too difficult or too dangerous for humans to perform, so how do robotic helpers handle the job not only in the sea, but in space as well?
Module | Sea to Space | Science of Sleep
Sometimes a good night’s sleep is hard to find on land, but what about under the ocean or in space?  How does micro gravity affect your sleep cycles?  What’s happening in your brain while you sleep?

UNIT | The Solar System

Module | The Solar System | Our Local Neighborhood
So what’s the neighborhood like when our Aquanauts head off to space? We’re taking a trip to see the sights around our solar system, so come on along!
Module | The Solar System | The Suburbs
Our journey continues from Mars, the Red Planet, and takes us through the gas giants all the way out to Neptune – ever wonder what’s really out there?
Module | The Solar System| ...And Beyond
Neptune’s not even close to the end of our solar system, although we often think of it as the outer limit – but there’s a LOT more to explore as we pass Neptune and head out to the real far reaches!
