NASA Debuts its New Video Program on NASA TV and the Web
 
 
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. – NASA launched a new high definition (HD) video program called "Destination Innovation" on Friday, Jan. 6 2012, that will air on NASA Television today at 1 p.m. PST. The program will also be featured on the agency's website, YouTube, Facebook and NASA’s apps for iPhone, iPad and Android.

The 10-minute program is filmed and produced by the video team at NASA's Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, which is located in California’s Silicon Valley. Ames plays a critical role in virtually all NASA aeronautical and space exploration endeavors, conducting the research and developing the technologies that enable NASA missions.

"A lot of amazing work for the agency is being done at NASA Ames," said Ed Schilling, the show's producer. "Destination Innovation will showcase not only Ames, but the agency. We’re looking forward to sharing our stories with a larger audience."

The pilot episode features NASA’s Kepler mission. Ames is the lead center for Kepler’s search for Earth-size planets in the "habitable zone," the region in a planetary system where liquid water can exist on the surface of an orbiting planet. More programs will be added in the coming months.
