NASA 360 Upcoming Programs and Welcome

Posted on by .

Welcome to the NASA 360 blog!  We have a really great season lined up for you…in fact our first program has already been nominated for an Emmy Award, so make sure to come back to this site often to check out our latest programs. I will tell you about some of the cool stories we will be showing this season in a few, but first let me talk about our philosophy. 

NASA 360 takes a 360 degree look at NASA’s past, present, and future.  Our goal is to show how NASA has changed, and continues to change all of our lives in a positive way.  We do this by examining how technology developed by/for NASA is being used in everything from space exploration to everyday consumer products.  A lot of people know that NASA works hard in space, but they don’t know all of the other exciting things we do that helps make the world a better place.  In fact at least 30,000 inventions have come in some way from NASA derived/inspired technologies!  So, NASA is helping us explore and make new scientific discoveries in space and back here on Earth, while also making all of our lives better.  

Ok, so with that premise, let me tell you a little about upcoming programs.  

This season you will see how NASA is involved with:

    • NASCAR

    • Indy Car

    • Helped unearth a Mummified Dinosaur

    • Is involved in Green Technology

    • Helped make discoveries along the Lewis and Clark Trail

    • Helped make some discoveries about the Mayan Civilization in Guatemala

    • See how astronauts train in 3D simulators

    • Take a tour of the Kennedy Space Center

    • Test robotic equipment and rovers that will be used on the Moon and Mars

And much much more!  

So come back often and tell us how what you think of NASA 360!

Let me give a quick shout out to some of our friends who have helped make this program possible (in no particular order).   Christopher Shank and Kristen Erickson from Strategic Communications; Michael Finneran (Head of Public Affairs at NASA Langley); Kim Land (ETDP); National Institute of Aerospace; Richard Antcliff (Strategic Communications & Education ); Everybody at HQ and NASA Langley; Everyone who has appeared in our program; our buddies over at NASA EDGE, Bob Allen; and so many more.
