The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) stands at the helm of America’s science and technology efforts related to air and space. Launched in October 1958, the federal agency oversees the country’s space explorations and aeronautics research endeavors. To maintain America’s edge in space and aeronautics technologies, NASA teams up with federal contractors. In fact, the federal agency spent more than $20 billion on government contracts in 2021 alone.
