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.

Tomorrow, asteroid 2002 NN4 will SAFELY pass by Earth at a distance of approximately 3.2 million miles (5.1 million km), about 13 times farther away from the Earth than the Moon is.

There is no danger it will hit Earth. Visit these FAQs for more: https://go.nasa.gov/2MwMHWm

Space exploration.... Mankind lacked the technology to build space craft that travel fast... So why not just tap the natural space resource like asteroids... Land the spacecraft on the asteroid, and journey along.  46 
16 hours ago
Because a) in space travel terms, asteroids still move really slowly, so the difference it makes is negligible, and b) you can't steer them and are probably just stuck in an irregular orbit around the Sun, maybe getting close to your intended destination if you're lucky.  11

One of the problems of space exploration is having the practical possibility of feeding yourself in long journeys - for a lifetime if required - without being dependent on Earth's shipments for resources. Hmmm... I wonder what type of efforts are being done in that sense...

It's interesting that you have to stress that the asteroid will safely pass earth at an enormous distance and that there is no danger that it will hit earth. This shouldn't even need to be said and I despair for humanity that it needs to be.  13

Dorathea Harlowe I am with you to speak, because indeed, if he is far away from us and has no danger, why do they say and why did they not say when it will pass for filming. For example, there is something secret or it is possible that there will be many rumors so they write so that this rumor does not spread. 👍

I'm curious... this image is the Hubble deep field. If that's correct, and I remember right, this was a several month exposure to the darkest area of sky we could find. What is the thing in the lower right quadrant that appears to have produced a lens flare?  18 
1 day ago
Mike Ryan that is a star in our own galaxy "photo-bombing" the deep field image. The flaring is "diffraction spikes" caused by the support vanes for the secondary mirror in the HST.  38

Mike Ryan that would be a star that is located in our galaxy. Sort of like you looking at your thumb and what is in the distance at the same time. The streaks or semicircles you see next to galaxies is gravitational lensing.  17

Antonio, I hear your skepticism. It isn't helpful. NASA is one of my clients. We do research and development for them. I do thermal stuff, imagery isn't my area. So, indirectly, you're also calling me out personally. Are you saying that I falsify data or am otherwise dishonest?  15

So that star has an apparent brightness far exceeding the background. Ok! I suppose I thought cosmic entities were above photo bombs. Lol Thanks friends!  10 
1 day ago
Mike Ryan note that the word “image” is used by NASA. Often times, people accept it as the equivalent of “picture”. This is far from the truth. All these images are manufactured from what they call “data”. Whether that “data” came from where they claim it came from is as truthful as the image is assumed as a real picture.  3

Jeffrey Johnson Hmm SpaceX has never claimed to build space telescopes. SpaceX have a vision to make humanity a multi-planetary species. In there short time they have developed working multi stage reusable rocket technologies, developed several variants of the falcon rocket, starship, and dragon spacecraft. They are the first commercial company to launch astronauts and cargo to the space station. They have also saved NASA $160 million dollars per launch in a full craft that went to Russia, NASA also spent £200 billion total for the space shuttle program biggest waste of money in their history not to mentioned it failed twice. I guess that ain’t enough for your high standards. 🙄  1

He wasn't, he's not, and Musk didn't just "blurt it out." He paid someone for dirt on the man because his own ideas for the rescue turned out to be unworkable, and the guy Musk paid took his money and lied to him.

Adjustment 1 Was NASA and its scientists aware of the moon's gravity, which is one-sixth of the Earth's gravity? Did they also know that there was no air and atmosphere around the moon before the flight started ?? And if they were really aware of all this, how did they have this knowledge of simple technologies in the sixties ?? ---- How did Apollo 11 launch from the moon back to Earth without a three-stage missile like the one that launched it from Earth to the moon ??  2 
1 day ago
Michael Alber Lamie Sidhom you can know the gravity of any planet without going there. There are ways to calculate the gravitational pull of an object. It’s simple physics and math. You can know the composition of a planet’s atmosphere, or lack of, before you get there. All you need is a spectrometer. The moon, we already knew, had 1/6 the gravity of earth. With less gravity, and the return vehicle being lighter and smaller, it could easily take off with a simple booster. As for technology, we had plenty of technology in the 60s to make this happen. I assume the next question will be “well, how come we’ve never return?!” Because we don’t need to. We already know pretty much everything there is to know about the moon. We now only need the moon for our next long term trips. For that to happen, we needed to research how humans can do long term in space. That’s why the space station was built. Now we know what it takes. We are ready.  4

And what, exactly, are you "Adjusting?"  3

Also, turns out launching less than 1/6 the mass from 1/6 the gravitational field through no atmosphere doesn't take a Saturn V. That one deserves a "DUH."  3

Thank you so much for inspiring so many and giving us something so amazing to bring us together with joy-filled cheers and pride. My 11 month old daughter has mosaic Down syndrome, and my 29 month old daughter is on the autism spectrum. Sometimes I ache because it feels like I can’t dream every dream for my daughters’ futures. But your inclusive team’s achievement shows that anything is possible, that technology is evolving so quickly, and that my daughters’ futures are bright with many possibilities. Keep up the excellent work, keep researching and doing experiments in space that may help my daughters someday. My most heartfelt congratulations and thanks to all of you who have worked so hard for so many years!  7

Are the socks that the crew wear NASA-issued? They seem like high quality and very white. Of course, it's probably easy to keep them clean when you literally never walk in them in the station. Asking the important questions here.  2
