NASA started in July 1958 with President Dwight Eisenhower passing the bill that allows funding for NASA with funding which was in June 1958.
The NASA programs is a programs used to make scientific discoveries about space and about all the galaxies for future and present references.

NASA is shutting down the space program because the ISS (international space station) will no further need any assistance. NASA also has completed it missions with the space shuttle program just like it is done with Apollo. But this does 100% mean that NASA is not shutting down. Their are many other missions that future astronaut's will discover. Such as the Constellation Program, and mission to Mars.
Russians Went to Space First The US space program (under NASA and the military branches) were competing with the space program in the Soviet Union (Russia). The Russians launched the first manned spacecraft (with cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin) into orbit on April 12, 1961. The US Mercury program launched two suborbital flights into space (Alan Shepard and then Gus Grissom) on May 5 and July 21, 1961, but did not achieve an orbital flight (with John… Read More

In fact, NASA is a relatively small organization, and the bulk of its centers and operations are performed by civilian Aerospace contractors. The debate on "privatizing" NASA is ridiculous, since private companies essentially run the space program anyway. NASA just administers it. The Space… Read More
