Welcome to NASA Science!

Science is interconnected.  What starts with a question, leads to new discoveries.  Those answers lead to new questions to build on, and since NASA operates in the extreme environment of outer space, we do the seemingly impossible every day.  NASA’s Science Mission Directorate is an organization where discoveries in one scientific area also have a direct connection to other areas of research.  This connectedness is rare in the scientific world.  We take a balanced approach to achieving scientific successes, from designing spacecraft to innovative technologies to funding research.  All these reasons are why NASA Science delivers the best value, every day.

Science always begins with a question – so ask your own questions as you explore NASA Science on our new web experience.
