NASA, we are not ALL imbosiles, there are plenty of extremely smart people in this world who did not need a educational degree to get where they are, there are also many, many talented people who didnt get that lucky break..

Another planet—Kepler-22b—reminds many of Star War's fictional Kamino. Learn more about this real planet: http://nasa.tumblr.com/post/143840915714/worlds-that-will-make-you-believe-star-wars-is #MayThe4thBeWithYou

For the first time ever, we conveyed aviation data to an airplane over a wireless communication system! Until now, pilots have relied on voice communication with air traffic control because traditional wireless technologies don’t support high data throughputs. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/26R0Ilr

I don't understand--even when I was in the Army in the '60's, we had methods of transmitting messages far faster than the could be read.

"Heroic women of NASA continually inspire young girls to enter the space program." -Daisy Ridley, "Rey" of Star Wars, as she introduces Charlie Blackwell-Thompson. Charlie will be the first woman to oversee a NASA liftoff and launch team. Meet her: https://youtu.be/Zdu7UxQ2XYU

Our Kepler spacecraft discovers planets resembling Star Wars worlds. Here's one with a double sunset. Is it Tatooine? Not quite: http://nasa.tumblr.com/post/143840915714/worlds-that-will-make-you-believe-star-wars-is #MayThe4thBeWithYou

Switch on the sun! We can simulate the solar and space environment to test future exploration equipment. Our High Intensity Solar Environment Test System (HISET) is the only place on Earth where spacecraft systems and materials can, at the same time, be subjected to the vacuum, temperatures, solar photons and to the electrons and protons of solar winds like they will encounter in space.

I am coming into an overdose of knowledge and information. I don't know how
to fix it all yet. My computer and all emails and phones are fried...thanks
to my sociopathic, narcissistic, oversexed, drugaddicted boyfriend. I am in
shock.

Introduction

NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. To do that, thousands of people have been working around the world and in space for more than 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions. What's out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there -- or learn just by trying to get there -- that will make life better here on Earth?


NASA's work is diverse: proving flight technologies; creating capabilities for sustainable human and robotic exploration; exploring Earth, the solar system and the universe beyond; developing critical enabling technologies such as the space shuttle; and conducting science in orbit aboard the International Space Station. With NASA you can explore the universe and discover Earth.
