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.

The #GOES16 weather satellite has returned its first images of Earth! In this picture you can see the moon, which the satellite uses for calibration. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2jVq1ma

Saturn’s moon Tethys may look like an eyeball staring off into space, but that large circle is the result of an enormous impact crater. Like any solar system moon, Tethys has suffered many impacts. In this case, a large impact not only created a crater, but the rebound of the impact casued the mountainous peaks to form in the center of the crater. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/2jKg2NW

Now’s the time for science in space! It’s easier than ever for researchers to get their experiments on the International Space Station, and scientists from nearly 100 countries around the world have been able to to take advantage of the orbiting laboratory to do research.

Sorry, but I said the title to myself the way Pigs In Space is said on the Muppet Show.

Earth is a complex system that we do not fully understand. Since the launch of the first weather satellite in 1960, we've been using satellites, aircraft and other craft to study our planet's air, land and water, or as it's called--"Earth System Science." Watch: http://go.nasa.gov/2jAOvyk

The Red Planet isn't always—well, red. As seen in this false-color image from the HiRISE camera aboard our Mars orbiter, sometimes Mars is blue. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/2jKLOur

Did you know that the International Space Station is the third brightest object in the night sky? It’s easy to spot too! Find out when and where to look up: http://spotthestation.nasa.gov

Making waves! In this closest view yet of Saturn’s small moon Daphnis, our Cassini spacecraft sees the effects of the moon’s gravity on the planet’s rings. Find out more about this image: http://go.nasa.gov/2jFpRNk

Deep red and bright blue stars are scattered across the frame, set against a background of thousands of more distant stars and galaxies in this stunning Hubble Space Telescope image. This region of the sky shows a portion of the constellation Sagittarius. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2jAH1eT
