Certainly, today we can’t complain about the variety of streaming platforms available to us. The trend that Netflix started was followed by services like Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, Disney+, SkyShowtime, and many more platforms (some of which are not available in Spain, like Peacock).
But nothing could have prepared us for the new contender in the streaming world: the most prominent space agency in the world, NASA.
The U.S. space agency has announced through a press release that it will launch its next streaming platform later this year. The service, named NASA+, will offer everything from live broadcasts of space missions to exclusive series and films.
“We are putting space on demand and at your fingertips with NASA’s new streaming platform,” said Marc Etkind, Associate Administrator for Communications at NASA headquarters.
“The transformation of our digital presence will help us better tell the stories of how NASA explores the unknown in the air and space, inspires through discovery, and innovates for the benefit of humanity.”
Among the productions and channels coming to NASA Plus are NASA Talks, Space Out, The Color of Space, NASA Kids, NASA Explorers, WEBB Space Telescope, First Light, NASA en español, Lucy, Mars Is Hard, NASA Explorers: Osiris Rex, and Artemis I: Path to the Pad.
The agency has confirmed that NASA+ will be completely free and ad-free. Additionally, the service will be available on most major platforms through the NASA app on iOS and Android mobile and tablet devices; streaming devices like Roku, Apple TV, and Fire TV; and on the web via mobile and desktop devices.
A project that would join the many others being carried out by the US space agency, including the development of a ChatGPT-like artificial intelligence for space missions and the creation of a nuclear-powered spacecraft that will allow us to reach Mars in no time.
