Happy Birthday to us! NASA turns 55 tomorrow. As we begin our 56th year of operations, we're expanding commercial access to the International Space Station and developing a new rocket and spacecraft to send astronauts farther than ever, starting with a mission to a captured, relocated asteroid in the next decade. We're exploring off the Earth, for the Earth, unlocking mysteries of our solarsystem and peering back into the beginnings of the Universe, all while developing technologies to enable NASA's current and future missions and improve life right here on Earth.

Stick around. It could get even more interesting.

  • _daniel.ap_@thetoymaker787 @wessml3 I'd like to work at NASA when I grow up as well! I'd like to be an aerospace engineer, you know designing spacecraft and space elevators and things of that nature. Hope I'll be able to work there in the future!
