NASA Langley – 100 Years: Something happened 100 years ago that changed forever the way we fly, the way we explore space and how we study our home planet. That something was the establishment of what is now NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, which commemorates its 100th anniversary on July 17, 2017.
Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first human to step foot on the moon and who learned how to do so by training at Langley said, “If a competition were held to determine the organization that had accomplished the largest number of advancements to aeronautic and aerospace progress, my nomination would be this place.”
This 45-minute documentary looks back across the 100 years, updates us on work being done at Langley today, and takes a peek into the future.
