The SciJinks Weather Laboratory at http://scijinks.gov is a website for middle school‑age children, sponsored by both NASA and NOAA. Skyjacks presents weather and other Earth science topics via games, stories, and fun facts, as well as simple, concise answer to often‑asked “how and why” questions. For example, answers will be found to “Why is the sky blue?,” “How does a hurricane form?” and “Why do we have seasons?”
Two new “how & whys” have recently been added:
* How did earth’s atmosphere form?
* Why doesn’t the atmosphere just float off into space?
