About NASA

NASA is America’s civil space program and the global leader in space exploration. At its 20 centers and facilities across the country – and the only National Laboratory in space – NASA studies Earth, including its climate, our Sun, and our solar system and beyond. The agency conducts research, testing, and development to advance aeronautics, including electric propulsion and supersonic flight, and develops and funds space technologies that will enable future exploration and benefit life on Earth.


NASA has issued new Conflict of Interest Policy Requirements, which will align with the existing COI policies of many other federal sponsors, most notably the US Public Health Service. The new policy will affect NASA awards issued on or after December 1, 2023. Learn more >
