NASA (National Aeronautic Space Administration) is revamping its flagship and science websites, adding its first-ever on-demand streaming service, and upgrading the NASA app.

Web Experience

The new web experience will be the home base for information about the agency’s missions and research, climate data, Artemis updates, and more. The updated websites will connect a topic-driven experience with a typical search engine, integrated navigation, and optimized publishing capabilities in a modernized and secure set of web tools.

Jeff Seaton, chief information officer at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, said of the new web experience,

Our vision is to inspire humanity through a unified, world-class NASA web experience. NASA’s legacy footprint presents an opportunity to dramatically improve the user experience for the public we serve. [1]


Their new streaming platform will be called NASA+. The platform will be ad-free, will have no cost, and will be family-friendly. Through NASA+, people can watch the agency’s Emmy Award-winning live coverage and view NASA’s missions through collections of original video series.

Marc Etkind, associate administrator, Office of Communications, NASA Headquarters, stated:

We’re putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform. Transforming our digital presence will help us better tell the stories of how NASA explores the unknown in air and space, inspires through discovery, and innovates for the benefit of humanity. [2]
