UNITED STATES - The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launched the NASA+ streaming service with the goal of bringing space exploration closer to the general public, since it offers content 24 hours a day allowing people all over the planet to be viewers of the space agency's activities and the exploration of the cosmos from their devices and homes.
This new television platform offers the public a diverse range of space-related content, as well as the space agency's archives over the years, as well as documentaries on launches, live broadcasts, and even up-to-the-minute coverage of current space missions.
Users will be able to enjoy documentaries on NASA's historic missions, with access to never-before-seen images and videos, iconic moments from lunar exploration or trips to Mars.
In addition, fans will be able to follow real-time broadcasts of ongoing missions, including rocket launches, spacewalks and other updates.
"NASA is leading the Federal Government in creating inspiring content that reaches people wherever they are," said Pam Melroy, NASA deputy administrator.
The platform will also offer an extensive library of educational content related to space science, making NASA+ a great tool for teachers and students.
It is also possible to find interviews with astronauts and scientists, as well as science outreach programs that will allow users to explore the universe and learn about the latest advances in space research.
