The National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 is the United States federal statute that created NASA. The Act, which followed close on the heels of the Soviet Union's launch of Sputnik, was drafted by the United States House Select Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration and on July 29, 1958, was signed by President Eisenhower.
