Space conquest had always been a race between the soviet union and the US. As it took place during the cold war, both nations were trying to prove to the other their superiority. The americans were the first to make it. When the cold war ended Nasa and the other space agency decided to cooperate together. Since they have accomplished many missions and done many researches.
The mission of the NASA is focused on understanding the Earth better, and exploring the rest of space and the solar system. Many satelites and robots have been sent into outerspace in order to take pictures and reaseach unknown areas of our solar system. Not all of them have been succesfull as such robots are very complicated to built, a lot of precision is needed. The slightest default and the entire mission could be compromised.
