NTSB Accident Database and Synopses — The National Transportation Safety Board’s database of aviation accidents, ranging from 1962 to present.
NTSB Aviation Accident Database— Aviation accident data from the National Transportation Safety Board
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration — A database of car and car part defects, searchable by item number or car make and model. — Crash test safety ratings for automobiles since 1990. — Real-time flight tracking, with support for Google Earth.
FlightAware — Fee flight tracking with history, graphs, and maps.


Ohio State – Compiles lots of Civil War info on troop movements, camps, battles, etc.


Iron Geek — An excellent library of videos explaining many facets of InfoSec and hacking & security
Security Tube – — A large library of videos covering many topics in InfoSec, cyberwar, and most of the hacking conferences.
DefCon — The main hackers Con, so well known that now the Feds send their folks here and it has become a wild west training ground for coming trends. Archives go back to Defcon 1. They are now on Defcon 20, I think.– General military hardware overview. Some deeper links to deep web
Shodan – The deep web search for what things are connected to the internet.  Controversial, but a good tool.

Hey people. If you know of a useful deep web resource, put a comment below and share the love!

Science and Academic search engines

Science and Academic

(Scholarly Paper search engines now have their own page) — Searchable access to scientific journals and databases.
Academic Index – Main search is a filtered Google search aimed at high authority rank sites, mainly .edu and .gov which filters a great deal out. Second search ties into deep web academic and non-academic databases skewed to librarians and educators. — Gateway to  science info provided by US government agencies. –  Phenomenal video lecture coverage from high authority rank sources.  A great go-to place to find peer-reviewed, conference presented, in depth coverage of a topic at a conference. A nice bonus, is the presentation slides are shown separately, and you can jump to slides of interest to you. Heavily technology based, and 66% is in English. Most lectures 45 minutes or longer.
WebCASPAR — A horrible interface to an alleged wealth of statistical info on science and engineering. I found the site slow, cludgy and designed around 1965 run off of candle power.  From their website:”The WebCASPAR database provides easy access to a large body of statistical data resources for science and engineering (S&E) at U.S. academic institutions. WebCASPAR emphasizes S&E, but its data resources also provide information on non-S&E fields and higher education in general. ”
The Complete Work of Charles Darwin — Charles Darwin’s published works,  search-able and available online. He’s still old and his works still ramble. Scanning didn’t help him much.
USGS Real-Time Water Data — Real-time map of streamflow and water quality data of the USA’s rivers and reservoirs.
USGS Earthquake Hazards Program — Showing real-time earthquake data. Focus on US but covers world as well.
IEEE Publications (Commercial) — Contains over 1.4 million documents from the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers.
Society of Petroleum Engineers Archive (Commercial) — Petroleum engineers technical papers. — Cornell University repository. Access to 700,000+  technical papers on everything from quantitative biology to computer science. Appears to offer full text in several formats.
VADLO – — Life Science Search Engine. Very hit and miss. Don’t have high expectations.
Deep Dyve  (Commercial)   DeepDyve has aggregated millions of articles across thousands of journals from the world’s leading publishers, including Springer, Nature Publishing Group, Wiley-Blackwell and more. Haven’t paid the premium to give it a test ride, if someone has, please write a review below.
