National Aeronautics and Space Administration – NASA
“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 non-aerospace 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, according to NASA.

NASA and all of its scientific accomplishments are located right here in Houston. Go for the day to have some family fun and learn about the amazing feat of aerospace travel and study. The leading source in scientific research and technology, NASA continues to be a driving force in aerospace exploration. Just another way Houston is helping lead the world.
