NASA Set To Launch Streaming Service

NASA is improving its digital platforms for the benefit of all by redesigning its flagship and science websites, launching its first on-demand streaming service, and upgrading the NASA app. With these changes, everyone will have access to a new world of content from the space agency.

The beta website’s early, in-progress preview is currently available to users, and they are encouraged to visit.

“Our vision is to inspire humanity through a unified, world-class NASA web experience,” said Jeff Seaton, chief information officer at the agency’s headquarters in Washington. “NASA’s legacy footprint presents an opportunity to dramatically improve the user experience for the public we serve. Modernizing our main websites from a technology standpoint and streamlining how the public engages with our content online are critical first steps in making our agency’s information more accessible, discoverable, and secure.”

An ever-expanding yet consolidated homebase for data on the agency’s missions and research, climate data, Artemis updates, and more will be provided by this new web experience.

The newly designed NASA.gov and science.nasa.gov websites will offer a topic-driven, connected experience, with a common search engine, integrated navigation, and optimized publishing tools in a modernized and secure set of web tools.

NASA will continue to update and improve the beta site as feedback from website visitors is received. Once fully launched, the online content from a number of popular agency websites will be included within this new experience to provide easier, more integrated access to NASA information currently available on the agency’s numerous websites.

NASA+, a new streaming service, will debut later this year, along with an update to the NASA app. Users will have access to the agency’s Emmy Award-winning live coverage and perspectives into NASA’s missions through collections of original video series, including a few new series launching with the streaming service, which is ad-free, free, and family-friendly.

“We’re putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform,” said Marc Etkind, associate administrator, Office of Communications, NASA Headquarters. “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.”

NASA+ will be available on most major platforms through the NASA App on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices; streaming media players such as Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV; and the web across desktop and mobile devices.

Following the launch of all new digital platforms, NASA will continue to integrate additional agency websites and multimedia libraries into this new experience in order to constantly streamline all information shared across its centers, missions, and programs. NASA will share science, research, exploration, and innovation with the world through cohesive platforms with a stronger digital presence.

“From exoplanet research to better understanding Earth’s climate and the influence of the Sun on our planet along with exploration of the solar system, our new science and flagship websites, as well as forthcoming NASA+ videos, showcases our discovery programs in an interdisciplinary and crosscutting way, ultimately building stronger connections with our visitors and viewers,” said Nicky Fox, associate administrator, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters.
