Transcript: How important is NASA? How large is NASA'S budget? NASA'S original intended purpose was an act to provide research into the problems of flight within and outside the Earth's atmosphere. Its purpose today is basically the same as the original purpose but today NASA also does many manned and unmanned missions for the discovery and research on other planets. How large is NASA? NASA has received $17.8 billion in this fiscal year, which is 0.5 but there has been talks of NASA receiving a 20 percent cut of funds. I believe that this budget should be decreased a little but I also think it is important that we stay ahead of other countries in the investigation of space. More then 18,000 people work for NASA. Even though NASA has a few minor offices for testing the two main locations are in Orsino Florida and Houston Texas. I think NASA is very important. It is important that we explore outer space and our atmosphere to continue to see how things work in outer space. I also think it is important that we explore Mars and find more information about the planets. I think it is important for us to know what else is out there and to keep finding new things. photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli The head of NASA is Maj. Gen. Charles Frank Bolden, Jr. He was nominated by President Barack Obama and then confirmed by the US senate. NASA Who heads NASA? NASA was established July 29, 1958 NASA What are NASAS functions and goals? Although there have been numerous goals for NASA the main goal right now is to discover information about mars. Scientist are trying to find if there is life on mars, determine its climate and geology and prepare for human exploration. These goals are obtained by the making of a new spacecraft and technology to protect astronauts from radiation and other harmful hazards What is its purpose? Kyle Bruner

What Space Technology is "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth." - President Kennedy's Speech to Congress on May 25, 1961 The Apollo 11 mission landed in 1969. The crew included: Neil Armstrong, Commander Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., Lunar Module Pilot Michael Collins, Command Module Pilot A Presentation By Kiran Maltby Thanks for listening to my Presentation:) The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's headquarters building is located at 2 Independence Square in Washington, D.C. NASA has 10 field centers and various installations positioned across the United States. NASA has done a lot of good projects here are some of my favorites: The man on the moon The Hubble telescope The Mars Rover Curiosity Previously, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) handled rocket research and other aerospace activities, but in 1957 the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the world’s first artificial satellite, which made it apparent that the United States needed to focus its efforts in order to avoid being left behind in the space race. Space technology is technology developed by space science or the aerospace industry for use in spaceflight, satellites, or space exploration. Space technology includes spacecraft, satellites, space stations, and support infrastructure, equipment, and procedures. The man on the moon The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) is a space telescope that was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990, and remains in operation. ... Hubble's orbit outside the distortion of Earth's atmosphere allows it to take extremely high-resolution images, with substantially lower background light than ground-based telescopes. Brown spots mark Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 impact sites on Jupiter's southern hemisphere. Imaged by Hubble. Where NASA is located Watch This Video On How NASA Landed Curiosity NASA stands for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. It is a government agency that was created by Congress in 1958. NASA's mission is to explore space and aeronautics, or flight research. The Hubble Space Telescope "Pillars of Creation" shows stars forming in the Eagle Nebula NASA Thanks to Curiosity, scientists found that ancient Mars likely had the right chemistry to support living microbes, according to NASA. By drilling into Martian rocks, the rover discovered what are believed to be the key ingredients for life -- carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur. What NASA Does

"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard..." -John F. Kenndy. The United States has invested far too much money into space travel and would be better off investing that money into other programs. The United States has invested far too much money into space travel and would be better off investing that money into other programs. John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson advocated for space travel and increased spending on the Apollo Missions. Instead of having the Government pay for everything, other private companies can design and engineer space shuttles backed by private investors. NASA was formed by Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958. With the amount of money we have spent throughout the years, our country did not get a proper return on investment. It costs $450 million to launch each space shuttle, and as a country the United States has launched 130. With the new funds that are now free, we can spend that tax revenue on other pressing programs. B. Thompson, M. (2011, April 9). Space Exploration: At What Cost? : DNews.
