National Aeronautics and Space Administration

NASA stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration-National Board of Aeronautics and space, in free translation for the Portuguese. It is a government agency of the United States of America responsible for research and development of technologies and space exploration programs. His mission, essentially, is to foster the future “ in the research, discovery and space exploration ”. Created on 29 July 1958, NASA replaced the NACA – National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics).

The Agency was responsible for the Project Apollo space missions set – that culminated in the shipment of the man on the Moon – and several other research programs in space. Currently she performs works in conjunction with the European Space Agency, with the Russian Federal Space Agency and with some countries in Asia. In addition to the involvement of several countries in setting up the International Space Station.

At first, the Agency’s science is focused on a better understanding of the Earth through the Earth Observing System, the promotion of heliophysics, in exploring the solar system and astrophysical research, expanding on topics such as the Big Bang. NASA also has developed several programs with satellites and space research probes that have traveled to other planets. Some of these probes are already being prepared to leave our solar system. Already the next big goal, and that has attracted the attention of everyone, is a manned trip to the planet Mars
