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.

Chad Jones Yes. The Lunar Descent Module didn't have the necessary radio equipment to broadcast home, but the command module in lunar orbit did. Added buy the fact we had literally every radio transmitter tuning into there fruquency. Communication wasn't that big of an issue. (To give you an idea on how far we can send and recieve packets of information: Voyager 2 is still capable of doing so even when it is literally at the edge of the solar system. That's roughly about a light year from Earth( Heliosphere) ).  6

It would be really cool if you would target a return to one of the original landing sites to document the effects of the passage of time.  1

GRANTED, there's an added risk: landing isn't always 100% precise (less so on other bodies vs. Earth, where we have limited experience) so we can't land TOO close, lest the lander bump into an object left behind, including the base of an Apollo lander. (this would be very dangerous to the mission) Possibly a better alternative (that HAS been proposed) is sending robotic rovers to go and explore those sites, especially since we've now mapped them out using satellites like the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.  2

I still don't understand why is it impossible to get good quality photos of apollo landing sites or rovers that were left there. There are satalites in earth orbit that can reportedly read licence plates but no one has technology to capture clear pictures from moon orbit of whats left of those sites?  1 
1 day ago
Roger Malete perhaps, it's because satellites that have that good of resolution are spy satellites. Why would you think spy satellites would be used to look at the Moon? Also, I highly doubt they can read a license plate anyways. There is technology to capture those sites though. There are orbiters around the Moon which have photographed the landing sites. They show the equipment and tracks on the surface.  5 
23 hours ago
Roger Malete And spy satellites are set up to view Earth close up. The moon is 250,000 miles away!  3 
20 hours ago
While the official resolution on spy satellites is classified based upon the declassified info from the last generation of spy satellites and the size of aperture you would need to get that resolution it's unlikely that any satellite would get roughly mm/pixel of resolution needed to read a license plate from space. For example the KH-11 at best case scenario would get 6cm/pixel although atmospheric conditions would slightly make this worse, which can obviously count the number of cars in a parking lot at a important faculty and even get an approximate idea of the models of cars, but you're not going to read license plates. The various scientific probes orbiting the Moon (e.g. LRO, Change'e) aren't nearly as large so their resolution is less precise. Nevertheless they're good enough you can see the shadows of the Lunar decent modules on the surface where NASA says they landed.  1 
18 hours ago
Shawn Augsburger I've heard of at least one private satellite company that can do facial recognition and identify you from the top of your head. In 2008 it was reported some spy satellites could see down to.041 meters which is 1.6 inches
23 hours ago
Roger Malete Tech gets better as time goes by. Nothing in orbit can see anything very small, (less than 3 feet?) but that has already improved the past decade. Eventually you'll see everything at the sites, including the tons of goods they tossed out. It'll be interesting.

I think the biggest honor will be also the actual photos of all landing places in high resolution. I'm curious how US Flags looks like today after amount of time and temperatures.

May be a looonnng time before that happens. Visiting old sites is a very low priority, and I really doubt it will happen within the first decade or two after they return to the Moon.  5

Not only would it be a low priority, but I feel that many historians would prefer it not to become some tourist site.  1

Marcin, they expect that the colours are faded now because of the solar radiation. I'm sure you've seen curtains that have faded in the sun here on Earth because of the sunshine. It's much more powerful without the atmosphere on the moon. The flag is probably white by now.  1

Just wanted to share that I am getting married on July 20th, 2019, the 50th anniversary of the moon landing! Our wedding theme is "I love you to the moon and back." For my bachelor party, I took my buddies to watch the Apollo 11 documentary on IMAX. It's truly a privilege to have my wedding on the same day as the anniversary of this great civilizational milestone.  3

I wanted to be able to give a heartfelt shake to each of the competent officials who had given their time and dedication so that the man would really win the moon! I believe that today is the international day of friendship, it was with such a noble act that all humanity can watch through their televisions the arrival of this rich knowledge and historical progress, to all my congratulations and may God continue to bless today and always. Strong hug. Thank you for making history and bringing beneficial content to the whole planet earth!  1

There is a bit of sadness in the great celebration today - we should stop that kindof hinking about "the first time we did something..." and celebrating more "the time WE KEEP doing something.. " Perseverance and the right sense of achievement vs. pure challenging and fighting for something just for a sense of self-accomplishment because you momentary stay on top of some ranking (which is BTW the only thing politicians want)... A sort of romantic rationality based on science, art , technology, cooperation and teamworking In other words.. REAL evolution There is a moon in front of all of us, that's true, but the best is when I look into someone else's eyes and I see, reflected , my same moon Keep doing something, fight for medium/long term programs, give a strategic direction of our adventures in space and, of course CONGRATULATIONS for all you have done so far

Mike Amin Salimi...still waiting for that proof... You're claiming NASA lied... That would mean you have evidence right in front of you to that effect... "Put up or shut up", I believe is the phrase... Tin foilers have had 50 years to prove their point, and every time it's either debunked, nonsensical, or kicked down the road, claiming "the evidence is coming, just you wait"... And just so you know, gifs and conspiracy blogs don't count as proof...  10

Carol Behan the unfortunate side of this is that it does NOT represent our country. The media MAKES it represent our country. The vast majority of us are normal every day folks who love our country and ALL of her people. We love people from all over. We love our rule of law that helped this country get to here. We understand our place in the world and want the best for everyone regardless of how they want to achieve their greatness. The elections are swayed by the extremes. We elect based on fear alone. The majority of us love our exploration of places, space, underwater, anywhere. We want to go back to the Moon, on to Mars... The media will never show us... They show who they want to display as us so they can make money off of it.  1

Carol Behan don’t pay any attention to that negative behavior. That’s the devil’s work, and that does nothing good for anybody. Just follow the admonition of Paul. Philippians 4:8 New Testament 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  1

The quote makes no sense. What he said was "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." He verified that later. It's easy to lose a syllable: try saying "for man" and "for a man" over and over.  5

I perfectly understand the mistake. There was so much stress on them to get everything right, and the pride of the United States was literally in their hands. I live near Huntsville, Alabama, and when I was a teenager in the 1980's, you would see retired NASA people all around. They would tell you that the push to succeed was on everyone. Every book on Apollo that I have read mentioned it. Also, before I knew what he was supposed to say. I always interpreted it as meaning that he was taking one small step for the men that put them there, and one giant leap for everyone. I knew lots of educated people who thought the same.  3

Morrow Hall whatever he actually said, the fact that he was there to say it at all is much more important than 1 word of 1 syllable and 1 letter. It was small step, whether it was taken by a man or a woman. But it was huge in respect of changing future history!!! I say we concentrate on that, rather than the grammatical correctness of it. My brain just turns to mush by simply trying to grasp the enormity of it all. Wow. I mean.... WOW!!! 😲😲😲😁😁😁
