The responsibility for running the civilian space program falls on NASA, an autonomous organization within the US government. Aeronautics and aerospace research fall under its responsibility too. In 1958, as a response to the Soviet Union’s launch of the first artificial satellite Sputnik; President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the Administration.
Its technical infrastructure is composed of different hardware and software systems employed for research, development, and data analysis. It launched its initial website, nasa.gov, in the year 1995. The website has been updated and redesigned many times since then to adapt to technological advancements and evolving user requirements.
Multiple social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook. Instagram and YouTube are utilized to maintain an active online presence. Through its social media accounts, ongoing missions and research updates are shared. The agency also offers behind-the-scenes looks at its work and educational resources. It frequently interacts with its followers and provides responses to their inquiries and comments.
Several APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) are offered to enable developers in creating applications and services using their data. These APIs contain:
- Access to the library of images and videos is provided through the Image and Video Library API. The database has in excess of 140,000 pictures and videos that concern space-related topics.
- This API offers information on comets and asteroids that are recognized to approach Earth.
- The provision of satellite data related to our planet’s atmosphere, land surface, and oceans can be achieved through this specific API offered by the Earth Observatory.
The performance of these APIs is widely regarded as good due to the ease of use and reliability that developers consistently praise.
Over time, the Administration has developed to align with changes in technology and shifting priorities within space exploration. Their attention has turned towards exploring deep space with a focus on missions to Mars in recent years. Sending a woman and a man to land on the moon for the first time by 2024 is what Artemis program strives for.
