A LITTLE HISTORRY President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1958, in response to the Soviet Union's launch of the first satellite. NASA grew out of the National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics (NACA), which had been researching flight technology for more than 40 years.National Advisory Committee on Aeronautics President John F. Kennedy focused NASA and the nation on sending astronauts to the moon by the end of the 1960s. On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first to walk on the moon. Meanwhile, NASA developed the first weather and communication satellite. After Apollo, NASA focused on creating a ship to provide access to space. The so called: Space Shuttle. First launched in 1981, the space shuttle flew more than 130 successful flights before retiring in 2011. NASAhas continued its scientific research. Which led to many improvements on Earth.
TODAY NASA splits its work in three principal organizations: Aeronautics: pioneers and proves new flight technologies that improve our ability to explore space. Aeronautics Human Exploration and Operations: focuses on Space operations and human exploration beyond Earths orbit. Human Exploration and Operations Science: explores the Earth, solar system and universe. Science In the early 21st century, NASA's space research continues. The explorration unit Opportunity is still studying Mars. Cassini is in orbit around Saturn, and Juno makes its way to Jupiter.
BUT There are things Will not let you know … A lot of people have the idea that NASA is a civilian science agency, In the act of Congress that created it, it says, anything NASA discovers is subjet to classification and must be kept secret from the people. The Brookings Report, which was commissioned by NASA right after NASA was created, essentially was commissioned for the purpose of deciding what NASA should do if they infact made some sort of extraterrestrial contact... If they either found artifacts on the Moon or on any other planet, or they had direct contact with a superior intelligence, what they should do, and the Brookings Report says very specifically, number one, DON'T TELL ANYBODY. If you tell anybody, it will shatter the fabric of our civilization. It will destroy us. and it's not. Hey !
