Where can I find publicly-available scientific data to use in an Excel project?

I need to do a project for a computer science course I'm doing that involves VBA and Excel. Basically, we need to develop a fairly complex spreadsheet application that manipulates data sets - preferably real data, and preferably a lot of it.
I'm looking for data sources that might make for an interesting project. At the moment I'm using a catalog of exoplanets
, but I'm wondering if there's something else out there along similar lines that might contain more information to work with. Ideally, I'd like something that can be downloaded in CSV format.
