NASA to Launch New Streaming Service App
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is set to launch a new on-demand streaming service accessible via a mobile app. The service, called NASA+, will provide users with access to new content from the space agency. With the recent surge in interest in outer space, driven by billionaires vying to colonize space and increasing news coverage of UFO sightings, the NASA streaming app aims to satisfy people’s curiosity about the mysteries of space.
NASA+ will be an upgraded version of the existing NASA app, offering a range of features and content. This includes Emmy Award-winning live mission coverage and new series. Marc Etkind, NASA’s Office of Communications associate administrator, stated that the new platform aims to make space content easily accessible and inspire people with NASA’s exploration and innovation.
The launch of NASA+ coincides with upgrades to NASA’s websites, nasa.gov and science.nasa.gov. These upgrades include a common search engine, integrated navigation, and optimized publishing capabilities, all designed to provide a modern and secure web experience for users.
The new streaming service will be available on the NASA app, which can be downloaded on iOS and Android devices. Users can also access the service through web browsers and media players such as Apple TV, Fire TV, and Roku.
In addition to the streaming app, NASA has been working on various other projects. One such project is Valkyrie, a humanoid robot designed to perform tasks during space missions. Valkyrie is currently being tested in Western Australia, with NASA aiming to gather data to improve the robot’s design for future space missions.
The agency is also developing a ChatGPT-style interface that will enable astronauts to have conversational interactions with spacecraft. This interface will enhance communication between astronauts and their vehicles, allowing for more efficient control and real-time problem detection.
The NASA streaming app will provide an opportunity for everyone to learn about the latest projects and research from the space agency. The app is expected to launch soon, and in the meantime, users can visit the beta version of the NASA website at beta.nasa.gov to get a preview of the new look and features.
