What our employees say...

Want to know what it's like to work for NASA? Watch the evening news as the space shuttle docks with the space station ... or as a Mars Rover tracks across the martian surface. Imagine that you helped make it happen. That's what it's like to work for NASA.

What we do...

The work of NASA is extensive and far-reaching. Our work ranges from the everyday operating of our facilities, to exploring the mind-boggling, outermost limits of the past, present and future of our universe.
