This is a win-win situation. People world-wide will be able to check out-of-this-world exciting photos on the popular photo sharing social network service and NASA will be able to connect with all its fans.
Agency officials declared they will upload both photos and videos on the newly created Instagram account. The uploaded media will promote Earth science, aeronautics, human spaceflight, astrophysics and more.
The “Nasa on Instagram” link can be publicly accessed without the need of an account: http://instagram.com/nasa. Until now NASA has already gathered almost 180000 followers while having no more than 25 posts. Some of the already uploaded images highlight the lunar mission, while others provide a glimpse into the launch preparations for LADEE's liftoff.
