Quartz Watch Ever wonder how a watch works? Discover the fascinating stories behind the invention of the quartz watch. This Smithosian Institution site provides history and background information on quartz clocks. Quartz clocks existed well before the 1960s. Inventing a quartz wristwatch was a task of miniaturization, requiring low-power, low voltage integrated circuits, miniature quartz crystal oscillators, small batteries, micromotors, and electronic displays. All of these components had to be specifically developed, requiring contributions from several diverse disciplines.
Deep Impact: The First Look Inside a Comet will be the first mission to make a spectacular, football-stadium-sized crater, seven to 15 stories deep, into the speeding comet.

Jurassic Park Institute represents the next step in the evolution of one of the most popular franchises in motion picture history - Jurassic Park. A science-based and educationally focused program, JPI has one mission - to provide kids, families, educators and scientists with the ultimate resource for dinosaur learning and fun. Beginning with the launch of JPI Online, the Institute will, when completed, combine all forms of media to create the most exciting and dynamic forum for dinosaur fun, study, and research the world has ever known. While Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park: The Lost World are works of fiction, the premise is grounded in scientific fact and theory. The filmmakers and author Michael Crichton went to great lengths to make sure that that the science upon which the movies were based was as credible and realistic as possible. The Jurassic Park Institute will use this as its foundation and will continue this commitment to authenticity. Dinosaurs were the most spectacular and some of the most successful animals ever to walk the Earth. Often times they are a child's first entry into the world of science and a subject of endless fascination and speculation among people of all ages. By its unprecedented support of scientific research, its public communication of the latest information in science education, its activities, exhibits and programs, The Jurassic Park Institute opens a new window into the greatest adventure in the history of life - the world of dinosaurs.
