Are you ready for the free NASA streaming service?
Available across iOS, Android, and a wide range of streaming devices, a free NASA streaming service has been officially announced by the space agency. The service will include content from NASA’s award winning live coverage and their new original video series.
“From exoplanet research to better understanding Earth’s climate and the influence of the Sun on our planet along with exploration of the solar system, our new science and flagship websites, as well as forthcoming NASA+ videos, showcases our discovery programs in an interdisciplinary and crosscutting way, ultimately building stronger connections with our visitors and viewers,” shared Nicky Fox, NASA’s associate administrator of the Science Mission Directorate.
Along with the free NASA streaming service, the agency will be updating their flagship websites along with the NASA app. The redesigned science.nasa.gov and nasa.gov websites will offer a topic-driven, linked experience with a unified search engine, integrated navigation, and enhanced publishing features. Everyone will have access to a whole new universe of information thanks to these modifications.
“Our vision is to inspire humanity through a unified, world-class NASA web experience,” stated Jeff Seaton, chief information officer at NASA’s HQ in Washington. “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 standpoint and streamlining how the public engages with our content online are critical first steps in making our agency’s information more accessible, discoverable, and secure.”
As it gets input from users, NASA will keep updating and enhancing the beta site. When the new updates go live, they will include online material from a number of well-known agency websites to provide a simpler, more integrated access to information available across the agency’s several websites.
“Transforming our digital presence will help us better tell the stories of how NASA explores the unknown in air and space, inspires through discovery, and innovates for the benefit of humanity,” said Marc Etkind, NASA’s associate administrator at the Office of Communications.
The upcoming free NASA streaming service will release sometime this year and will be available for download through the NASA website.
