Whether NASA is using social networks to allow students to interact directly with astronauts, or creating a Cloud Computing Platform to give unprecedented access to scientific data, we have embraced Open Government.

We are focusing on embedding open government into three integrated aspects of our operations—policy, technology, and culture.
