Greenbelt, MD 20771



NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, plays a pivotal role across all aspects of the agency's missions, from development to de-orbit.

More than 50 Goddard spacecraft explore Earth and soar through the solar system, collecting observations to be parsed and studied by scientists around the world. Goddard's missions support multiple scientific disciplines, including Earth science, solar science and the sun-Earth environment, planetary studies and astrophysics.

Goddard is the operational home of the venerable Hubble Space Telescope. Goddard studies the tenuous atmosphere of Mars with MAVEN and the Red Planet's surface with instruments aboard the Curiosity rover. Goddard surveys the moon with LRO and watches our sun with the Solar Dynamics Observatory. GPM, Landsat and a host of other satellites monitor Earth and our changing climate.
