We're opening our doors in June for you to see @spacex's Falcon Heavy rocket launch from @NASAKennedy in Florida. Apply to go behind the scenes, meet experts from @AFspace & much more during our event: .

Ever wanted to hike mountain trails on Mars?

Since 2014, @MarsCuriosity has been climbing the rocky terrain of Mount Sharp — for science! Follow the rover's path and see where scientists hope to learn more about the history of water on the mountain:

I joined Ali Velshi today on @MSNBC to talk about @nasa's plans. Watch:

Unlocking the potential science of the Moon allows us to explore like never before. Watch @Dr_ThomasZ of discuss how the @WhiteHouse budget amendment supports robotic exploration ahead of our 2024 mission to land humans on the lunar surface: 

We’re sending the 1st woman & next man to the Moon in 2024, but do you know about technology that will help us get there? Watch James Reuter of @NASA_Technology explain how a budget amendment enables us to do things quicker & more broadly than before: 

.@WhiteHouse’s budget amendment supports several elements that are needed to get us to the Moon in five years:

"We're going to be sending humans to the Moon," said Administrator @JimBridenstine. He and other senior leaders spoke during an employee town hall about our mission to return astronauts to the Moon by 2024. Learn more about the mission: 

"Everyone who is of age remembers where they were when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon. We are trying to create that moment for the next generation." - @JimBridenstine

We are going.

We are going to the Moon — to stay.

We will build sustainable infrastructure to support missions to Mars and beyond. This is what we’re building. This is what we’re training for. We are going.
