Admit it: the worldwide quarantine got us spending our daily routine, and eventually getting tired of it. This is when online activities and classes started showing up so we can continue being productive even at home. NASA has now joined these online activities, offering educational programs.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) presents ‘NASA at Home’ which provides people with videos, podcasts, e-books, do-it-yourself (DIY) projects, as well as virtual reality tours. They have made the Hubble Space Telescope and the International Space Station a virtual experience too.
NASA’s associate administrator for the Office of Communications, Bettina Inclan, hopes that everyone could take time to explore NASA at Home. She also comments that people, especially students, are trying to find ways to ‘leave home’ without actually stepping foot outside; this is that way to safely explore the universe and beyond.

They also released an app which kids could enjoy because it would allow them to pilot an aircraft. There are also various activities for the young ones to check out such as science lessons.
With a tagline which promotes bringing “the universe to your home”, they’re certainly living up to expectations when it comes to exploring the world—even space too—in the palm of your hand.
