A group of Nigerians from the Igbere community visited the National Aeronautics and Space Administration on an Education & Development tour organized by the Igbere Progressive Association International.
The aim is to understudy the United States space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research.
NASA conducts its work in four principal organizations, called mission directorates:
(1). Aeronautics: works to solve the challenges that still exist in our nation’s air transportation system: air traffic congestion, safety and environmental impacts.
(2). Human Exploration and Operations: focuses on International Space Station operations, development of commercial spaceflight opportunities and human exploration beyond low Earth orbit.
(3). Science: explores the Earth, solar system and universe beyond; charts the best route of discovery; and reaps the benefits of Earth and space exploration for society.
(4). Space Technology: rapidly develops, demonstrates, and infuses revolutionary, high-payoff technologies, expanding the boundaries of the aerospace enterprise.
