Coral reef

The acronym “NASA” stands for:
National Aeronautics & Space Administration.

How & when how did NASA start?
? After World War II, both the Soviet Union (formerly Russia) & the U.S.A. both wanted to be the first to explore space.
? History was made when the Soviet Union successfully launched the first satellite, called Sputnik, into space in 1957.
? The sent shockwaves through America & without further delay, the government invested huge amounts of money into a space science agency called NASA, which opened a year later in 1958.

Cool Facts:
?‍? NASA hires volunteers to spend months lying down as part of their prolonged weightlessness study.
?‍? George Aldrich was hired to sniff everything before it goes into space. If he didn’t like the smell, it didn’t go to space!

Bored at home?
HELP NASA map the world’s coral reefs. NASA has launched a fun and educational video game called NeMO-Net (available on Apple App Store) in an effort to map and save the coral reefs from further damage caused by pollution, global warming, and climate change.

YOU can be a part of conserving the coral reefs by playing this game!
NASA collects the game data & uses it to identify & evaluate the coral reefs around the world & works towards preserving them.
