Here's a link to the Mars Rover images. I usually check this out once or twice a week to see what's going on.

Here's an interesting link, I don't know if any of you have heard of Clifford Pickover but he writes a bunch of books about all sorts of things including sci and tech. This is one of the pages on his website, updated often with tons of links. Some are interesting, some aren't :p

Very cool! Thanks for the links! I have a lot of new sites to check out now ;)

Here's my contribution:

SciFi Tech - hard to find on the SciFi.com website, but worth it; plenty of interesting gadgets and ideas.

RedOrbit - a broad spectrum of science, space, health, education and entertainment, all in one spot.

My favourite websites relating to space exploration (and mostly to the Apollo program):

Moonbase Clavius
The ultimate Apollo hoax debunking website

ApolloHoax.net
Despite the misleading title, an anti-hoax website with a very good discussion board

NASA History Division
The gateway to lots of fascinating resources... if only you can find them.

Manned Spaceflight PDF Documents
A better way to find those resources. An absolutely massive collection of scanned documents that go all the way from Mercury to the ISS. The real deal.

Apollo Story
The website for the best book ever written on the space program.

Spacecraft Films
Source for highly detailed DVDs focusing on individual missions and on the development of particular pieces of hardware.

JSC Oral Histories
The story of the history of the space race... told by the people who made it. I can't recommend this enough.

NASA TV
As if anything intereresting is going on these days. But sometimes they have good documentaries.

You are such an Apollo whore, my dear... perhaps you and Glynn Lunney should get a room? ;) (ducks)

But seriously...

One of my favorite sites is:
www.spaceflightnow.com

The site has the most comprehensive and easy to use (as well as updated) launch schedule I have found lately online, covering not just NASA/Air Force but also Russian, ESA, and private firms planning to launch. A great vacation planning tool if you are a rocket-whore, like me.

Go ahead, my dear, but wait till you have read my Ode to you elsewhere in this forum... perhaps I'll break you of your Glyn Lunney obsession...

Lego Robotics Seminar.

Were gadgets mentioned somewhere? Think Geek.

And have a look at this list of institutes: Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft

A little late: CeBIT 2006.

Everything else I can think of right now has been mentioned. Impressive link collection!

Wow, I can't believe Naraht didn't post this:

Encyclopedia Astronautica - This is an excellent resource for information about just about anything that's ever been launched. It can be hard to navigate, but it's incredibly extensive.

Wow....that's a nice website I'd never seen before! So many good ones are listed on this page.
