for six decades, NASA has led the peaceful exploration of space, making discoveries about our planet, our solar system, and our universe‘, anicorn writes on an instagram post detailing the collaboration. ‘at home, NASA research has made great advances in aviation, helped to develop a commercial space industry, enrich our economy, create jobs, and strengthen national security. outside the united states, their international partnerships shine as examples of diplomacy. space exploration has brought together people of diverse backgrounds working for the good of all humankind.

  • Why limited units only? Doesn’t jibe with what NASA is doing exploring unlimited SPACE…make it available if possible I’m sure there are more than 60 individuals who wants to own one

    Jonas says:
  • So – NASA could not find a company in the US to make a dumb watch? …maybe that’s indicative of why there are 7Mil job openings in the States. We’re either on disability or food stamps; our gene pool is settling to the bottom. Jeeez!

  • Broke 26 year old that loves everything to do with space including NASA. Want to represent but can’t afford. Waiting for a clone from Aliexpress. NASA will get my money through other means; repping their logo is still promotion.
