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.
