NASA (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is the USA organization for space technology and research. Astronomy projects include:

Among its programs:

  • Explorers Program - science missions, both astronomy and Earth science, including SMEX, i.e., the Small Explorer Program, and MIDEX, i.e., the Medium-Class Explorers Program.
  • Large Strategic Science Missions, aka Flagship Missions, - costly programs such as Cassini and JWST.
  • New Frontiers Program (NF) - "medium-scale" planetary exploration missions: NF1, NF2, etc.
  • Discovery Program - low cost missions, particularly exploring the Solar System.
