Established in 1958, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is the agency responsible for the public space program of the United States of America and the civil and military long term aerospace research. NASA operates on four directions:

  • Aeronautics: managing the research focused on global air mobility demand in ways that are more environmentally friendly and sustainable and at the same time are embracing revolutionary technology in aviation
  • Exploration and manned space operations: it focuses on the International Space Station operations, on the development of commercial spaceflight capabilities and human exploration beyond low-Earth orbit.
  • Science: exploring the solar system, Earth and the universe;
  • Space Technology: development, innovation, testing and diffusion of breakthrough technologies that make possible future NASA missions while providing economic benefits to the nation.

The President of the Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) and the Romanian Prime Minister signed in May 2000 a collaboration agreement with NASA, after which there were carried out projects in telemedicine, agriculture and microgravity experiments on the International Space Station.
