HEADQUARTERS HISTORICAL REFERENCE COLLECTION RENOVATION:
The History Office’s Historical Reference Collection closed on Oct. 25, as part of the ongoing building renovation and will not reopen until this summer. The good news is that we will have a much improved storage and work space by then. Reference services will continue in the interim. However, the archival staff will only be able to provide very limited reference assistance by searching the History Office digital repository. Please contact the archivists on 358-0384. Check this site for periodic updates.
For those of you who have been wondering how our renovation project is going, the answer is "great!" We got a sneak peek recently. Click here for photos.

Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many great scientific and technological feats in air and space. NASA technology also has been adapted for many nonaerospace 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 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. Check out our "Thinking About NASA History" folder online as an introduction to how history can help you.
