NASA News Digest: NASA Reaches New Heights in 2015

Greetings fellow astrophiles,

The NASA News Service put together a great summary of a whole lot of amazing, publicly-funded science and engineering that may have started years and years in the past (think New Horizons launch in 2006, which only happened after the team was organized in 2000), but finally came to fruition in 2015 (and what a year it’s been!).

The NASA News Service provides up-to-date announcements of NASA policy, news events, and space science. A recent selection of space science articles are provided below, including direct links to the full announcements.

NASA Reaches New Heights in 2015

RELEASE 15-232 (Click here for the full article) – 21 December 2015

In 2015, NASA explored the expanse of our solar system and beyond, and the complex processes of our home planet, while also advancing the technologies for our journey to Mars, and new aviation systems as the agency reached new milestones aboard the International Space Station.

“It was a fantastic year that brought us even closer to Mars,” said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. “Our space program welcomed advances from commercial partners who will soon launch astronauts from the United States to the International Space Station, and progress on new technologies and missions to take us into deep space, improve aviation and explore our universe and home planet.”
