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
