NASA’s vision: We reach for new heights and reveal the unknown for the benefit of humankind.
We all know…
NASA develops technology
NASA researches in several fields
NASA send things to distant places
NASA takes pretty cool photos of galaxies (look at Messier 94 Galaxy)
NASA takes pretty cool photos of Earth (just look at Italy)
The outcomes have a big impact in our life see more here or in my post: @rmach/space-exploration-s-impact-on-everyday-life
How is all this organized?
NASA’s work focus on four main topics, each ruled by a subdivision:
- Aeronautics: manages research focused on meeting global demand for air mobility in ways that are more environmentally friendly and sustainable, while also embracing revolutionary technology from outside aviation.
- Human Exploration and Operations: focuses on International Space Station operations, development of commercial spaceflight capabilities and human exploration beyond low-Earth orbit.
- Science: explores the Earth, solar system and universe beyond; charts the best route of discovery; and reaps the benefits of Earth and space exploration for society.
- Space Technology: rapidly develops, innovates, demonstrates, and infuses revolutionary, high-payoff technologies that enable NASA's future missions while providing economic benefit to the nation.
