In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, or N-A-C-A – NASA’s predecessor, NASA astronauts Barry Wilmore and Terry Virts sent a congratulatory message from onboard the International Space Station. The NACA was founded on March 3, 1915, “to supervise and direct the scientific study of the problems of flight with a view to their practical solution, and to determine the problems which should be experimentally attacked, and to discuss their solution and their application to practical questions.” In 1958, responding to the nation’s fear of falling behind the Soviets in the utilization and exploration of outer space, Congress passed the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958, which formed a new civilian space agency, NASA. NACA staff, research facilities and operations formed the core of NASA when it came into existence on 1 October 1958.
