SPACE: A Journey to Our Future – Exhibit Collaborators
NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION (NASA)
Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many scientific and technological feats in air and space. NASA technology has also been adapted for many non-aerospace uses by the private sector. NASA remains a leading force in scientific research and in stimulating public interest in aerospace exploration, as well as science and technology in general. Perhaps more importantly, our exploration of space has taught us to view the Earth, ourselves, and the universe in a new way. While the tremendous technical and scientific accomplishments of NASA demonstrate vividly that humans can achieve previously inconceivable feats, we also are humbled by the realization that Earth is just a tiny “blue marble” in the cosmos. www.nasa.gov.
