If there’s one space agency that captivates astronomy enthusiasts, it’s NASA. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has been exploring space for over 50 years, much to our delight. And, like any organization, it’s adapt or perish.

In 2023, one way to innovate is by launching a streaming service related to space and the missions carried out beyond our planet. That’s exactly what NASA is doing with NASA+, and it’s a breath of fresh air.

The free channel is part of a broader overhaul of the space agency’s website and app. The new look and content are set to debut on Wednesday, November 8th. But we already have a sneak peek of what’s coming.

The programs that lead to NASA+

NASA has just released a trailer for its new ad-free streaming channel, NASA+, which will be broadcast without advertisements. In recent days, they have also released brief teasers for some of the new series that will appear on the channel.

For example, “Space Out” promises amazing visuals that encourage viewers to “space out with relaxing music and high-definition visual scenes of the cosmos, from the surface of Mars to a sunset on Urania.” The trailer (above) suggests that it will be a more stimulating alternative to fireplace videos.

Regarding “Other Worlds,” it will provide periodic updates on the work of the James Webb Space Telescope, which has been capturing incredible images of deep space since the middle of last year. Scientists hope that this advanced space observatory can provide us with more data about the history of the universe and identify Earth-like planets capable of hosting life.

“In moments that have been years (and sometimes decades) in the making, scientists react to the new information coming from the James Webb Space Telescope, the world’s most powerful observatory,” states NASA in a message accompanying the trailer.

And in “Explorers,” NASA will cover the story of the OSIRIS-REx mission, a remarkable effort that recently returned from deep space with a sample collected from the asteroid Bennu.

“For the cost of a blockbuster movie, a team of scientists and engineers set out to collect and return to the United States the first sample of an asteroid collected in space,” explains NASA. “Embark on the exciting journey of OSIRIS-REx, which returned a sample from the asteroid Bennu so that we can learn more about the origin of our solar system.”

NASA+ is preparing more content and will provide more details on Wednesday, launch day. Stay tuned, the Netflix for stargazers is coming.
