On March 3, 1915, Congress created the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), the organization from which NASA was created in 1958. NACA research led to advances in aeronautics that helped the Allies win World War II, spawned a world-leading civil aviation manufacturing industry, propelled supersonic flight, supported national security during the Cold War and laid the foundation for modern air travel and the space age.

This group photo was taken on steps of Langley Research Building on Nov. 5, 1928. In the front row are, left to right: E.A. Meyers, Elton Miller, Amelia Earhart, Henry Reid, and Lt. Col. Jacob W.S. Wuest. In the back row are, left to right: Carlton Kemper, Raymond Sharp, Thomas Carroll, (unknown person behind A.E.), and Fred Weick. During her tour of Langley, Earhart had part of her raccoon fur coat sucked into the 11-Inch High Speed Tunnel.

1915年3月20日,国会成立了国家航空咨询委员会(NACA),NASA于1958年从该组织成立。NACA的研究推动了航空学的发展,帮助盟国赢得了二战,催生了世界领先的民用航空制造业,推动了超音速飞行,在冷战期间支持了国家安全,为现代航空旅行和太空时代奠定了基础。
