Brian Dunbar, Internet Services Manager, NASA Office of Communications, explained the changes on NASA’s homepage. Below is an excerpt from his full statement.

“There are lots of changes on the back end that will be invisible to you,” Dunbar said. “We’ve moved to an open-source content-management system, a new content-delivery network and a new data center….This first transition is just the start. We’ll continue developing the new tools through September, and early next year will begin laying plans for an overhaul of the site, our first since 2007…Related content should be more effectively presented together. Multimedia and social media should be more tightly integrated with web content, while respecting the different preferences of social-media and web audiences…Onward. I hope you’re looking forward to it as much as we are.”
