The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, is responsible for aeronautic, aerospace, and space research. Officially an agency of the American government, it is in fact a Templar organization.
NASA was the agency responsible for the Apollo program which resulted in the first successful landing on the Moon. Unknown to the public, the first Moon landing retrieved a Piece of Eden from the lunar surface. At least one photograph released to the general public, of Buzz Aldrin performing solar wind experiments, was altered for release to the general public. The 'plain white banner' seen by the public in fact showed the Templar cross, and the American flag on the lunar lander was in fact the logo of Abstergo Industries.
