About the Space Science Institute
The unique mission of the Space Science Institute (SSI) is to integrate scientific research with education and public outreach. Our research program includes earth science, space physics, planetary science, and astrophysics. SSIís National Center for Interactive Learning (NCIL) develops science and technology exhibits for museums, science centers, and libraries; develops educational websites and software interactives; provides professional development for formal and informal educators; and conducts learning research and evaluation for the education community. NCIL programs are aligned with the national education standards in science, math, and technology.
SSI has five major branches:
- Research - Astrophysics, space physics, planetary and Earth sciences.
- Flight Operations - Home of the Cassini Imaging Central Laboratory for Operations.
- Education - Traveling exhibitions, interactive websites, and workshops for educators and scientists.
- Business Operations, and Information Systems and Technology (IST)
