NASA to Share the Universe with Tumblr Users

regular dose of space in a blog-like format through text, photos, videos and

other content creators in a collaborative micro-blog format. People are able
to discover, share and create content that expresses their personality,
hobbies and interests. The NASA Tumblr profile will share information, images
and video about the agency's missions of exploration and discovery.
