What Does NASA Do?

We reach for new heights and reveal the unknown for the benefit of humankind. Thousands of people have been working around the world - and off of it - for more than 50 years, finding answers. What's out there? What will we find? What can we learn there, or learn just by trying to get there, that will make life better here on Earth?
