As a kid, I was always fascinated by astronauts and space in general. I loved the Star-Trek movies and all though I realize that those movies are all fake It never stopped me from nerding out when I got to see what kinds of things NASA was up to just above our planet.

This video shows some of the projects that they are working on up there in 8k! If you get really close to your screen it's almost like your in space with these folks. Almost.

I can't wait to see what other discoveries they are going to make in the next 5-10 years, which is why I'm always keeping a close eye on the NASA website for videos just like this one.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention they don't just have new photos and videos. They've got videos and photos from back in the day too. It's always fun to take a walk back in our scientific history and check out photos from the surface of the moon.

Space, the final frontier.
