Explore the universe and discover our home planet with the official NASA page on Google+
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.

Think you know Earth? Think again. We know a lot about our planet, but there is still much to learn. Here are nine facts that will make you rethink how well you know our world: http://nasa.tumblr.com/post/144658611659/earth-by-the-numbers

YEAH I DO, BUT LOVE TO LEARN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY'RE
IS MORE TO LERN AND THERE IS PLENTY TO LERN ABOUT THIS EARTH, BECAUSE THERE
IS STILL PLACES, MAN STILL HASN'T COME ACROSS, BUT WHAT LIFE IS ON THIS
PLANET ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO HUMAN LIFE HAS REALLY GOTTEN BAD, KINDA
LIKE SODOM AND GAMORA BUT MUCH WORSE, AN HOW SAD IT HAS BECOME, SO I KEEP
IN MIND THAT THERE ARE STILL GOOD PEOPLE HERE ON EARTH ALSO, BUT GOT TO DO
SOMETHING ABOUT THE ONE'S WANTING TO DISTROY ARE EARTH AND WHAT'S LEFT OF
THE GOOD HUMANS, ESPECIALLY ALL THE CHILDREN,

Jupiter is now the most dominate gravitational force on our Juno spacecraft. Since its launch five years ago, there have been three forces tugging at the spacecraft as it speeds through the solar system — the sun, Earth and Jupiter. Juno will perform a Jupiter orbit insertion maneuver on July 4 of this year. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1sEzGhl

Haha. I know. Was just making a joke of that poor bastard. Now, if you excuse me, I must go lift my weights.

Aerial images show decades of foothill forest growth erased due to California’s extreme drought. Three decades of forest growth was erased by drought impacts over much of the lower-elevation Sierra Nevada mountain region in the past couple of years. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/27XTmNK

+Stephen Tuggy I made zero claims to refute the presented facts in the article. I bear no burden of proof. Meanwhile, +didyoulisiten came here to denigrate with attacks while making claims in which he provided no citations or anything whatsoever to back up his claims. That's how burden of proof works. Debating 101.

Since when does one need to provide citations to prove that in the spring, things get greener? Let alone the well documented fact that massive eruptions in the past from volcanoes like Krakatoa ejected enough ash into our atmosphere to cause a brief period of cooling, commonly called the "Little Ice Age"? Well documented facts such as those do not require citations from those defending them. Citations are required from those refuting them with nothing more than their opinion.

Space hitchhikers: our new Space Launch System rocket will carry a dozen small satellites on its first flight. On its maiden flight, the rocket will demonstrate its heavy-lift capability and send an unscrewed Orion spacecraft into deep space. Taking advantage of additional available mass and space, these small satellites will be sent to conduct experiments beyond low-Earth orbit. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1WSjpBW

Expansion and pressurization of the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) is complete as of 4:44 p.m. EDT today. BEAM’s pressure will be equalized with that of the International Space Station, where it will remain attached for a two-year test period.

The module measured just over 7 feet long and just under 7.75 feet in diameter in its packed configuration. BEAM now measures more than 13 feet long and about 10.5 feet in diameter to create 565 cubic feet of habitable volume. It weighs approximately 3,000 pounds.

During the next week, leak checks will be performed on BEAM to ensure its structural integrity. Hatch opening and NASA astronaut Jeff Williams’ first entrance into BEAM will take place about a week after leak checks are complete.

BEAM is an example of NASA’s increased commitment to partnering with industry to enable the growth of the commercial use of space. The project is co-sponsored by NASA's Advanced Exploration Systems Division and Bigelow Aerospace.

Expandable habitats are designed to take up less room on a spacecraft but provide greater volume for living and working in space once expanded. This first test of an expandable module will allow investigators to gauge how well the habitat performs and specifically, how well it protects against solar radiation, space debris and the temperature extremes of space.
