NASA stands for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. NASA was launched (pardon the pun) in 1958 with an aim to discover more about space, our solar system and to investigate whether humans could travel into space. In 1969, NASA sent Apollo 11 to the moon and astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first people to step on the moon. Today, scientists at NASA continue to research outer space using telescopes, satellites and space exploration. They are also one of the space agencies who support the International Space Station. #NASA
