NASA: On the Edge of Forever



To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and the opening of the new film Star Trek Beyond, NASA has produced three videos about the link between the science fiction franchise and the real-world space agency. The first one is about the International Space Station (ISS).

NASA has always loved Star Trek. The fictional universe inspired generations of young people to pursue science and technology careers, and among those who didn’t, it engendered a respect for space exploration that enables NASA to continue funding projects like the ISS and Mars exploration.

Miss Cellina,

I have followed your blog for at least five years. You are very good at your craft, and I like your skills with neatorama, and mental floss. I can always count on you to provide something interesting in the early morning which is my reading and writing time. I author the sonographers blog.blogspot.com it is a medical blog. I refuse to post political views. But, I would love to link up with you in your science section if you have one. Thanks for your time
