NASA, the US federal space agency, is set to introduce its own free streaming service, NASA Plus. This platform will offer viewers the opportunity to watch launches, documentaries, and more, all free of advertisements and designed to be family-friendly.
NASA Plus aims to enhance its storytelling capabilities about the agency’s exploration endeavors and connect with a broader audience. The service will feature new original series exclusively produced by NASA.
The streaming service is expected to roll out later this year, accessible on TV hubs, streaming boxes, as well as NASA’s new beta website. Upon its official launch, NASA Plus will be integrated into an upgraded NASA app available on both iOS and Android platforms.
The beta web experience will not only provide easier access to NASA’s information but also enhance its discoverability and security. The website will offer details about NASA missions, research, climate data, and more. Additionally, it will serve as a source for real-time updates about the upcoming Artemis II mission, set for next year.
This initiative follows NASA’s recent sharing of various recordings with the public, including audio of plasma waves interacting with Earth’s magnetic field and a recording of sounds from a black hole. This year, a NASA scientist and his brother even translated ocean colors into music.
Furthermore, NASA’s recordings have unveiled fascinating facts, such as Mars having two speeds of sound and the agency transforming data from deep space nebulae into musical compositions.
