Initiative to robotically capture an asteroid and redirect it to a stable orbit in the Earth-moon system.
Partnership to help the aerospace industry in the US develop space transportation systems that can safely launch astronauts to the ISS and other low-Earth orbit destinations.
NASA has joined the European Space Agency's (ESA's) Euclid mission, a space telescope designed to investigate the cosmological mysteries of dark matter and dark energy.
IRIS will observe how solar material moves, gathers energy, and heats up as it travels through a little-understood region in the sun's lower atmosphere. Tracking how material and energy move through this region is a crucial part of understanding the dynamics of the sun.
InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) is a proposed NASA Discovery Program mission that will place a single geophysical lander on Mars to study its deep interior.

The James Webb Space Telescope is a large space telescope, optimized for infrared wavelengths. Webb will find the first galaxies that formed in the early Universe, connecting the Big Bang to our own Milky Way Galaxy.
NASA’s LADEE mission will orbit the moon to characterize the atmosphere and lunar dust environment.
This mission would advance high-priority science goals for Mars exploration, including key questions about the potential for life on Mars. It would also respond to the challenge of sending humans to Mars orbit, perhaps as early as the 2030s.
