Focus on live and interactive events

The landing of the Curiosity rover, the successful launch of private rockets to the International Space Station and Felix Baumgartner's historic jump from the edge of space all drew attention in 2012. People are inspired by feats of intellectual and physical achievement, and they need to know what NASA is doing (and could do) with their tax dollars. Make it easier for people to view and interact with scientists and astronauts at work. Put NASA Live front and center on the new web site.

    Thanks for the good suggestion, but just so you know, NASA wasn't involved with Felix Baumgartner's jump.

      I am aware of that, but it drew a similar kind of attention.

  2. I loved the interactive "chat with a scientist" feature

    NASA provided. It was both inspirational and imformative, regardless of the topic.

  3. The problem with NASA scientists having to interact with the public all the time is that they'd never get any work done.

    It is easy to get information at NASA.

    The home page has updates. There are NASA emails of all sorts. You can follow NASA programs on Twitter.

  4. I'm afraid that I can't agree with this proposal. There is too much focus on less substantial events for popularity sake, like astronauts going back and forth between Earth and the ISS, for instance. We need more updates on actual exploration missions, such as the Messenger, The Kepler Mission, the New Horizons etc. and these updates can't be live, obviously.

  5. I would love to see an historical section of how the U.S. Airforce has handled the U.F.O. phenomenon and why. Also I would love to see NASA not stray away from discoveries like this one made on Sol 124 by the MSL Curiosity rover. They showed some images of the alien technology found on Mars, but said nothing and had absolutely zero follow up images. I'm referencing this image of course.
