NASA's Origins Program

Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA

This site from NASA takes up the challenge of answering questions as old as our species. The Origins Program examines the beginnings of the universe and the formation of galaxies, stars, and planets, using the maturing technologies for observatories such as the Space Interferometry Mission (SIM), the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), and the Terrestrial Planet Finder (TPF). The site features current news items, numerous images, and links to missions, technology information, and education resources.
