What is Launchpad?

Access Launchpad, or “Launchpad,” is an online tool that makes it easy to manage your NASA user profile.  In a few easy steps, you can create or update your NASA user profile, reset a forgotten password, or change your security answers.

What is my NASA User Profile?

A NASA user profile consists of your Agency User ID, a specific password, and a completed set of security questions. A growing number of NASA applications are being integrated with Launchpad and require a NASA user profile.

Follow these instructions to create a new NASA User Profile.  The process takes less than 5 minutes.

What is my Agency User ID (AUID)?

Every NASA employee has an Agency User ID (AUID) (no more than 8 characters) that is unique across the entire agency. This AUID allows you access to e-mail and various applications, Web sites, and services.

Password Requirements

Profile (or Launchpad) passwords require at least 12 characters containing at least one of the following: Capital letter, lower case letter, symbol, and number. Your NASA profile password will expire every 60 days. You will receive an e-mail indicating that your password is about to expire 15, 10, 7, 5, 3, and 1 days prior to the expiration date of your password.

Visit Launchpad to change your password or reset a forgotten password.

Accessing Applications

All Launchpad-enabled applications recognize the credentials in your NASA user profile.  Having entered your credentials once, your direct access to Launchpad-enabled applications remains in effect for 12 hours or until you shut down your computer.

A growing number of applications also provide users with a simplified login experience.  When you see a “yes” in the right-hand column of the Launchpad-enabled applications page, that means that you will not see a separate login screen when you access that application.  “No” means that when you access that application, you will be required to type in your Agency User ID and password on the Launchpad page.
