The company I chose was NASA, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. This is the United States government agency responsible for the civilian space program as well as aeronautics and aerospace research. They create the newest of technology to educate and explore the questions of what is outside of the earth, and even further. Their inventions include telescopes, rovers, and high quality cameras to capture what humans cannot. Going all the way back to the cold war, Russia’s Sputnik caused a tremendous drive to explore space. Lyndon Johnson assembled space hearings, which prompted the Senate Special Committee on Space and Aeronautics. On April second, a draft was sent to congress producing NASA’s first “draft.” Since then it has been amended countless times to come to its current standpoint. Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many great scientific and technological accomplishments. NASA is a leading force in scientific research and stimulates public interest in aerospace exploration, as well as science and technology in general. Perhaps more importantly, the exploration of space has taught us to view the Earth, ourselves, and the universe in a new way. The tremendous technical and scientific accomplishments of NASA demonstrate vividly that humans can achieve…show more content…
However, looking into its future, NASA is producing a Space Launch System (SLS) which will be the most powerful rocket in history for deep-space missions. This will include going to an asteroid and then ultimately to Mars. The first flight test of the SLS will feature a configuration for a 70-metric-ton (77-ton) lift capacity and carry an uncrewed Orion spacecraft beyond low-Earth orbit to test the performance of the integrated system. As the SLS evolves, it will enable missions even farther into our solar system. Without going into too much detail, they have also created satellites, cameras, exploration rovers, and many more
