At the Net Advance of Physics, you can find out how to derive the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model of light nuclei, bone up on the motions of objects in the Kuiper belt at the edge of the solar system, and learn about hundreds of other topics. The virtual encyclopedia from Norman Redington of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology links to resources such as Wikipedia, online physics dictionaries, and articles and tutorials in the preprint server arXiv. Recent additions include biographical sketches and other information for audiences of Michael Frayn's play Copenhagen, about the World War II meeting between Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr.
