America cannot afford to squander the opportunity to take full advantage of exploring the next great frontier: space. So it is time for the presidential candidates -- Mr. Obama and Mr. Romney -- to let America know where they really stand on the issue.
Having a compelling vision for where you want to go or what you want to do--something that is bigger than any one person, something that might even seem impossible--is the kind of vision that can cause people to want to do more, want to reach higher, want to keep trying.
I always told myself that if I ever had the chance to meet Neil Armstrong I wouldn't request an autograph or ask him any questions about his time in space -- I would just thank him for his service to our country.
Along with other pioneering astronauts, Neil Armstrong changed the way we look at moon and what we know about the mysterious orb. On August 31, a Blue Moon will occur -- the perfect time to honor the first man on the moon!
From an iPhone (or Android), consumers will be able to request an image from the satellite, orbiting 600 kilometers above the Earth. They will be able to send a message to SkyCube from their phone as well.
The story of our exploration of Mars is being written every day, and I look forward to seeing what you add, Curiosity!

NASA scientists are still trying to determine by exactly how much Martian super PACs pre-date those on Earth and whether or not their contributions to political speech have been helpful or hurtful.
Arriving as it will on the heels of the Olympics, Curiosity will continue the flow of good kind of news we have been witnessing from London to the people of Earth. The mission represents the kind of news we want to hear and see, the kind of news that inspires us.
American space exploration, built around manned space flights, fueled U.S. scientific and technological preeminence in the 20th century. Unmanned space exploration will be the key in the 21st century, and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope promises to be an important part of it.
Sally Ride helped to change what the word "astronaut" could mean, and generations of girls have grown up with different ideas about what they could be because of her example.
Forty-three years ago, Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. Nowadays, the idea of vacation on the moon is gaining traction with the American public.
