NASA has shared a trailer highlighting next week’s launch of the free video streaming service NASA+.
“We launch more than rockets,” NASA said in a post about the new offering. “No membership required,” he said. no ads. no cost. family friendly! Emmy-winning live show. Original Series. On most major platforms.”
NASA+ is arriving on Tuesday, Nov. 8, and is part of a broader overhaul of the space agency’s website and app.
The free streaming service will feature the award-winning live coverage currently shown on the NASA Live site. NASA+ will also stream original video series about the agency’s many space missions – past, present and future – along with other original content.
The update comes at an exciting time for NASA as it prepares to send the first astronauts to the Moon since the last Apollo mission in 1972. Artemis II will send three Americans and one Canadian on a lunar surface flight next year, followed by Artemis. III, which will send the first woman and the first black man to the Moon. Astronauts are currently testing a new camera to capture the crewed moon landings, with no doubt the majority of the images captured are thanks to NASA+, as well as the agency’s refreshed website and app.
“Our vision is to inspire humanity through a unified, world-class NASA Web experience,” NASA Chief Information Officer Jeff Seaton said when news of the update first broke earlier this year. “NASA’s legacy footprint presents an opportunity to dramatically improve the user experience for the public we serve. Modernizing our main websites from a technology perspective and streamlining how the public engages with our online content is an important first step toward making our agency information more accessible, searchable, and secure.
