The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is the United States government agency responsible for the nation's civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research. Founded in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research, answering basic questions like: What's out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find?
Why We Participate
NASA's vision is to continue to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind, and we are excited to honor projects that have those same goals.
