RELEASE: 11-253


WASHINGTON -- NASA has launched the new


blog to highlight the agency's Open Government success stories.
The site is part of the White House's Open Government
Initiative, which requires federal agencies to create a new
level of openness and accountability and provide public access
to unclassified data.

The site is a collaborative blog for the open government
community to highlight the ways that transparency,
participation, and collaboration are being embraced throughout
the agency.

"NASA is committed to experimenting with and embracing new
participatory ways of collaboration," said Linda Cureton, the
agency's chief information officer. "The launch of open.NASA is
a new chapter in NASA's culture of openness and an exciting new
way to engage citizens in our activities."

NASA released its Open Government Plan in April 2010 in response
to a White House directive. The new open.NASA blog is
complimentary to the official NASA Open Government website,
which includes the Open Government Plan, a status report and
associated projects. To learn more about NASA's Open Government
Initiative, visit:
