We’re delighted to beam congratulatory high-fives to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. 

In July, the agency announced revamping their flagship and science websites, adding their first on-demand streaming service, as well as upgrading the NASA app this year. 

With these changes, “everyone will have access to a new world of content from the space agency,” NASA notes in its news release.

NASA is working with WordPress VIP and Gold Partner Lone Rock Point to build and host the agency’s new CMS platform underpinning these new online experiences.

Where no content has gone before

“Our vision is to inspire humanity through a unified, world-class NASA web experience,” said Jeff Seaton, chief information officer at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., at the time of the announcement.

“NASA’s legacy footprint presents an opportunity to dramatically improve the user experience for the public we serve. Modernizing our main websites from a technology standpoint and streamlining how the public engages with our content online are critical first steps in making our agency’s information more accessible, discoverable, and secure.”
