Happy Birthday NASA!

The year was 1958. Elvis Presley sang on the radio and Alaska was just about to officially become a state. It was 50 years ago that President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the National Aeronautics and Space Administration otherwise known as NASA. Since then the men and women at NASA have:
  • Put people in space and on the moon
  • Uncovered life-like evidence on Mars
  • Mapped new planets with the Hubble Telescope
  • Developed weather and communication satellites
