NASA Launching A Free Streaming Service

NASA revealed last month it will revamp its flagship and science websites, upgrade its app, and launch a new streaming service.

The agency promises the free streaming service — coined “NASA+” — will be ad-free and give users access to live event coverage, exclusive interviews, special panels, as well as original content.

“We’re putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform,” Marc Etkind, associate administrator of the NASA Headquarters Office of Communications, said in a statement.

“Transforming our digital presence will help us better tell the stories of how NASA explores the unknown in air and space, inspires through discovery, and innovates for the benefit of humanity.”

The agency uploaded a minute-long teaser trailer for NASA+ that has amassed 125,000 views since it was posted on July 27.

“It’s a new era of pioneers, stars, sailors, thinkers and adventurers,” the agency boasts of the streaming service, which is due out by the end of the year on platforms including iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV.

NASA’s announcement comes on the heels of a new study, using data from its Mars Perseverance rover, that found evidence of organic molecules in a Mars crater, potentially indicating life on the planet.

"It's a new era of pioneers, stars, sailors, thinkers and adventurers," the agency said in the trailer.

“We are intrigued by these signals since they could be organic and would point to the possibility that building blocks of life could have been present for a long time on the surface of Mars, in more than one place,” study author Joseph Razzell Hollis told Newsweek last month.

“We would need [to wait for the samples’ return] to confirm the presence, type and mineral associations of organic molecules before we can consider whether they are specific evidence of past life.”
