About us

For more than 60 years, NASA has been breaking barriers to achieve the seemingly impossible—from walking on the Moon to pushing the boundaries of human spaceflight farther than ever before. We work in space and around the world in laboratories and wind tunnels, on airfields and in control rooms to explore some of life’s fundamental mysteries: What’s out there in space? How do we get there? And what can we learn that will make life better here on Earth?

We are passionate professionals united by a common purpose: to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. Today, we continue NASA’s legacy of excellence and innovation through an unprecedented array of missions. We are developing the most advanced rockets and spacecraft ever designed, studying the Earth for answers to critical challenges facing our planet, improving the air transportation experience, and so much more.

Join us as we reach for new heights and reveal the unknown for the benefit of humanity.

Fifty years ago, we pioneered a path to the Moon. Today, our calling to explore is even greater. We’re going to the Moon to stay — and then to forge a path to Mars and beyond. #Artemis is the next chapter of human space exploration: https://go.nasa.gov/2zh45YR

Mars will be the last frontier of human exploration. Orbitors-landers-AI rovers- robots- biohumanoids and human hybrids will explore the inner fringe and beyond the solar system. Humans have reach the limits of their technologies and are incapable of venturing beyond the solar system without help from the Significant Others.

Okay, you mention universities, which is great, but I’m thinking mainly of the congressional fight for a piece of the pie in every district. This isn’t exactly an effective way to achieve a goal. I really wish we’d fund NASA more, but how much has the SLS cost so far? The Falcon Heavy was produced at a tiny fraction of that cost. Maybe it makes sense to centralize things a bit rather make light of the inefficiencies.  4

Don't forget to turn the satelite telescope around sometimes so you can look at Earth and find all the missing children and the people who kidnapped them that would give the authority a great tool to find missing children. I know you are using those satellite telescope to measure the movement of the continent and you can identify the date on the penny since 1940 so you could also fine the pictures of the missing children at the exact moment when they were declared missing I know the administration of it is big and that would cost a lot of money but I donate to NASA and as a human I think the machine should serve us. Sincere regards dear intellectuals. Some members of my team used to be the responsible of the Saint Hubert Quebec NASA station when it closed down we were very sad but we knew the work that we could keep doing. Anyways I'm just thinking about all these people that committed a crime and got away with it and all the missing children  1

Tony Holst The flooding in this pic is from storms. Seacost Dr. use to flood so bad when I was a kid we would have piles of kelp in the middle of the road. Not to mention we’ve always had an erosion problem and our beaches aren’t as wide as the ones in Coronado. I Coronado some of the beaches feel like you can walk for miles to get to the water. Where this pic was taken, the road has the ocean on one side and the wetlands on the other, which is the Tijuana River Delta. So there is a natural process of erosion that everyone likes to blame on Global warming and sea rising.

Your graphic designer(s) needs an award. That is an outstanding logo. It can clearly be seen the designer(s) drew inspiration from and used the overall new design as an homage to the original Project Apollo logo as well. It’s clean, simple, and the dichotomy in designs contrasting the Project Apollo and Artemis missions works really well, since the mythical Apollo and Artemis were brother and sister. We are finally approaching the actual future we we promised by prognosticators in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  53

Wrapped in teal- and cobalt-colored bands of clouds, the planet that Voyager 2 revealed was blue-hued, indicating the presence of methane. Take a look: https://go.nasa.gov/2P7eKzW

Sakshi Sasane there's common sense between the countries all over the world that one should not interfere with other's domestic affairs. This is called sovereignty. Even UN peacekeeping missions need to be approved by the country's government. The real problem Brazil faces is having a fascist as a president.

Sean Whalen those fires were set by the farmers.  1 
15 hours ago
Sean Whalen True in many parts of the world, but not so in tropical rainforests. That's because the thick vegetation holds vast amounts of water which makes itself into the atmosphere. That's called transpiration, and it keeps the air inside those forests moist and difficult to burn even during the dry season. Areas that have been cleared hold far less water and makes the surrounding jungle far more vulnerable to fire because of the dryer air.  1

Pattorikku Desu-ga a lot of the problem is that the president of Brazil *wants* to use the rainforest for its resources.

How much NASA or the United States donated to the maintenance of the rain forest, again? How many acres of native land did the US replant last year? Seen to me that NASA technology and sensationalist photo-posts are used to push an agenda while blindsight another.

Hint: You are not doing well, US. #glasshouse  35

Roberto Correa sort out your point of view... the first half clearly states it’s all about the Brazilian ecosystem and then the last paragraph says it nothing to do with that and it’s all racism.

I feel like your quite a confused person. If I told you moles were digging up my back garden and I couldn’t grow flowers to sell at my business, would that be my neighbours problem?? Would they have to contribute towards to solution??  7

Peter Wheeler no, it's not. The planet asks for the preservation of a Brazilian land for the sake of the ecosystem. Mineral-rich Brazil is economically entitled to explore it but chooses not to at this stage. The United States and some countries in Europe like Germany, UK, France, Norway, Et Al, create sensationalist materials to manipulate public opinion about the internal affairs of this sovereign nation; hence my Questions: Did Norway stop whaling for the sake of the ecosystem? No. Did UK’s -directly responsible for the industrial revolution and the accumulation of 57% of CO2 by 1923, stopped their coal plants? No. In fact, the UK still relaying to 72% of fossil fuels to this day. France, responsible for raping Africa. Germany, responsible for the pollution of the North Sea and destruction of the last large forests of Western Europe. The USA, responsible for more pollutants and construction during the XX century than all the other nations combined. With these resumès, these nations should stay quiet about ecological talks. This is not about the ecosystem. This is about racism. It's about suppressing emerging nations to the top 5 economies in the world by 2030. If this destruction was in Canada, a white nation, none of those above would say a word afraid of losing commercial deals, yet, Canada destroys similar amounts of the land after oil and gas. Something to think about...  5

Did she say why? It might be that the location in question requires a meal purchase to buy them, though that is odd. Some franchise stores do have their own rules, however. Or they might have just been temporarily out and had to reorder. Each store only gets a limited supply, and when it's gone, it's gone. Check back, and see if they were out, or ask the store manager if they have a rule about buying them without food. If so, try a different location.

Yes, this means that the plan is to have permanent (rotated) habitation, much like on the ISS. Granted, Michael Anthony's also got an important point: NASA's budget is pretty constrained, and it's hard to see how they could keep up a brisk pace with their current funding levels. Funding's in pace to actually make a landing on the Moon a reality within the next decade, contingent only upon 3rd-party success in developing their landers. Even failing that, Artemis 2 has already been budgeted for, so yes, there will be at least a human flyby trip of the Moon around 2022-2024. It's just what happens AFTER that which is up in the air; perhaps there's hope that, after seeing success with Artemis 3, Congress can be convinced to finally, after over half a century, give NASA a meaningful and sustained increase to their budget.  1

The ISS is a magnificent achievement. Yet it was built without fanfare and little coverage in the media.  15

Casey Zevenbergen let me guess, you're one of the simpletons who thinks the ISS was all built at one time. Probably think there should be men with hard hats on scaffolding welding the ISS together in space. As opposed to segments being built on the ground and taken up on Space Shuttles, one section at a time. Thanks for the laugh.  4

Casey Zevenbergen what makes the ISS "historic?" It certainly wasn't the first space station built. Or, didn't you know that with all that "research" you tinfoilers like to pretend to do?  2

Zachary Lynn Wagoner No, not at all, it would have had to of been built in sections, where are the videos of this historic construction? There are none.

a wonderful view of the ISS. These space station have been floating up there since more than forty years as houses for space scientists getting trained for space ventures. One of the first space labs launched by Russians as far back as three or four decades ago was said to be 60 feet long and 100 feet wide! Now the space labs are more sophisticated.  1

For the first time, we've used data from our Spitzer Space Telescope to get a glimpse of surface conditions of a planet orbiting another star. The dark, rocky planet lies 48.6 light-years away and is 1.3 times the size of Earth, but has no atmosphere. Learn more: https://go.nasa.gov/2P3Gu8N

Awesome! We have found many, many exoplanets and now we are beginning to study their atmosphere! More and more details. Closer and closer we look. The advance of scientific data is so fascinating. Thank you NASA for sharing!  33

Albert Richie we knew a lot about Pluto before we got there. We just didn't know how the surface would look like. However, there were may surprises. We have an advantage with this rocky planet that we don't have with Pluto. And that is the star it's orbiting. We know the chemical composition of that planets star, and we know the orbit. So we can use that stars light to tell us if it has an atmosphere or not. We don't have that advantage with Pluto.  2

Happy #NationalAviationDay! Even if you didn't fly today, something you needed did. Did you know that NASA Aeronautics developed technology is on every U.S. commercial aircraft and in every U.S. control tower? That's why we like to say we're with you when you fly.

I have always loved & loved NASA work,👍❤ when I was young. Want to know about space & want to know the life of going to other planets, planets, moons mars? Very curious: Are aliens really there? Or is just a recount to each other in the story📚.🌎🚀🛫🌠☄🌔#Thank you very much .if NASA has enough to tell us a brief version with your experience I'm appreciated💕 again.😊  1
