NASA likes to be on the cutting edge of technology, even social media. You can follow NASA on Twitter and Facebook and some NASA employees (including astronauts) via social media.

NASA recently teamed up with Etsy to find the best space-related creations in the geek craft movement. Months were given for artists to create masterpieces in the categories 2D Original Art, 2D Reproductions, and 3D Art, and the winners were announced in March 2011. This gallery features work from some of the winners and finalists of the Space Craft Contest.
