(Hosting-NewsWire.com, December 16, 2012 ) San Francisco, CA -- NASA.gov has been a high-profile and moderately stable site since it was first designed in 2007; however the site is prepared for its first overhaul in design.

The FCW has reported on the use of the Ideascale to seek feedback on how the companies redesign should be used. On Nov 7, a podcast done by PBS Mediashift project, NASA.gov content manager, Brian Dunbar, talked more in depth on the plans for the site.
The site is consistently on the top of lists of government sites when it comes to popularity. Time magazine labeled the entire website one of the best overall. The problem for the site was that it was not run like a space-exploration site, but instead more akin to a newspaper site.
“NASA has its own television service, which provides you with the shots, say, of inside mission control and all the press conferences that we do, and so when we have an event we put it out over the TV service primarily for news media, but we stream it over the web,” said Dunbar. “When Curiosity landed in August, at landing we had 1.2 million webcasts going out for people who were following it online.”
As expected, NASA.gov spikes in views during large events, according to Dunbar. He recalled the overloads which occurred when the Comet Shoemaker-Levy struck Jupiter. So many individuals wanted to see the images for the collision, the site essentially was jammed to the point of breaking.
Dunbar explained that the site was simply not prepared to handle the high level of volume that the events generated.
Dunbar also explained, within a podcast, that NASA's social media and general web presence would run congruently with one another. He stated that plans to bring to two together were in the works as well.
He also noted that the number one idea from the Ideascale is allowing more access to scientific data.
