Where can you learn all about dead inventors or the logistics of traffic jams? Discovery Online, the Internet version of the television channel, brings the dry pages of history and science alive with cool articles.
Choose your subject of interest, be it history, technology, nature, exploration or science. Read stories like The Woman Who Reached for the Sky -- a collection of journals and letters from America's first woman astronomer -- or Alexander Graham Bell's Odd Obsession -- stories and a photo gallery of the inventor's lesser inventions.
But this site isn't just about reading; it's also about writing. Go interactive with Discovery's Live! chat events like Galileo Experts, a chance to talk with the scientists and engineers behind the Galileo spacecraft that is gathering information about Jupiter.
Discovery updates the site daily to keep the information current and cutting edge. Still, if none of the recent articles are to your liking you can check out the extensive archives, which are available in each category.
The site is filled with exciting pictures and there are lots of audio and other multimedia clips for those surfers with the hardware capabilities. Whatever your area of interest, it'll be worth your while to discover Discovery Online.
