Not in any way an endorsement, but places I go often:
For buying the best Poser stuff (and pretty good free stuff too), I go to
For mostly the free stuff, but also some purchases, plus artwork and discussion groups which help me come up with ideas, there's Renderosity and 3D Commune.
I've posted my art on my gallery at
Renderosity and as a result, I've become published on other sites (no
money in it, but I'm not about to quit my day job).
I've had one picture published as the cover of the week at Sci-Fi Weekly (Cover No. 488 - week of August 28, 2006).
A couple of my pictures are available at Desktop Starships.
For Space News, I always check:
Try NASA for cool rocket
science stuff. The Human

To see how many planets are out there try the ExtraSolar Planets Encyclopedia site, or look for bad asteroids at the Current Impact Risks site.
And the Solar System Simulator is always fun.
new If you want to devise a realistic science fiction spaceship, check out the Atomic Rocket web site by Winchell Chung.
Here's my very own Embedded NASA TV Page, using

Celestia is a cool free program for to explore the Universe in 3D (or 4D for that matter).
Notable Nearby Stars is a good reference for, uh... notable nearby stars....
Every day, I visit Wikipedia
as a reference or just to read the article of the day.
If you need information on various countries and territories, try the CIA World Fact Book (they almost always get it right, don't they?)
When I get around to rebuilding my solar system generator, it will be on
starcl.net. (I bought it, now I have to
Want to see where I come from? (no, not there!), this Camera site shows views of Bergen and other parts of Norway (sorry no English there anymore).
