Supported by a range of NASA missions and programs

ViewSpace is an established science product provided free of charge to informal learning environments through financial support and subject matter expertise from a number of NASA projects, including the NASA’s Universe of Learning project, NASA’s Earth Observing Systems, the NASA Hubble Space Telescope Project, and the NASA James Webb Space Telescope Project.

Funded by NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, the NASA’s Universe of Learning project is a partnership between the:

  • Space Telescope Science Institute
  • Caltech/IPAC
  • Jet Propulsion Laboratory
  • Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
  • Sonoma State University

The NASA’s Universe of Learning partnership provides learners with a direct connection to science and subject matter experts across the full range of NASA’s Astrophysics missions—past, present, and future. NASA’s Astrophysics missions seek answers to questions that have intrigued humankind for centuries: How does the universe work? How did we get here? Are we alone?

The Earth Observing System (EOS) is a component of the Earth Science Division of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. EOS missions help answer fundamental questions about the Earth as an integrated system.

The Hubble Space Telescope and James Webb Space Telescope are two of NASA’s flagship missions designed to explore and advance our understanding of the universe. The missions’ communications programs support ViewSpace to help share scientific advances and make the world’s astronomical information accessible to all.
