NASA’s real-time science encyclopedia of deep space exploration. Our scientists and far-ranging robots explore the wild frontiers of our solar system.
The Mars Exploration Program studies Mars as a planetary system in order to understand the formation and early evolution of Mars as a planet, the history of geological processes that have shaped Mars through time, the potential for Mars to have hosted life, and the future exploration of Mars by humans. The strategy has evolved as we have learned more about Mars and as more questions have arisen.
NASA's home for exploring everything beyond our solar system. Scientists use our fleet of telescopes to help us understand objects from our nearest neighbor stars, to monster black holes and distant galaxies.
NASA will use innovate technologies to explore the Moon’s South Pole and more of the lunar surface than ever before using the Gateway space station in lunar orbit along with advanced spacesuits and rovers. NASA will lead the way in collaboration with international and commercial partners to establish the first long-term presence on the Moon.
How does the map work? Can’t find your location? Visible to the naked eye, it looks like a fast-moving plane only much higher and traveling thousands of miles an hour faster! 214,566 people are Spotting The Station. Space Station Website. Space Station Research & Technology.
2 days ago · NASA has developed a series of telescopes to detect and characterize Earth-like planets, including the retired Kepler mission, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), and the new James Webb Space Telescope (Webb). The agency is now beginning to explore development of much more sensitive telescopes at different wavelengths to ...
NASA Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Independent Study. On June 9, 2022, NASA announced that the agency is commissioning a study team to examine unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) – that is, observations of events in the sky that cannot be identified as aircraft or known natural phenomena – from a scientific perspective. The study will focus on identifying available data, how best to collect future data, and how NASA can use that data to move the scientific understanding of UAPs forward.
