In mid-May 2017, the Goddard Multimedia Team received its YouTube Silver Play Button, an award presented to any account that has achieved at least 100,000 subscribers. When comparing numbers of subscribers, NASA Goddard is second to NASA TV. Note, at present, the channel has almost 450,000 subscribers; at the 1 million mark, YouTube presents the Gold Play Button.
The work featured on the NASA Goddard YouTube Channel contains features produced, created, edited, written, narrated, visualized, animated, etc., by several GESTAR members from the Office of Communication (Code 130), the Conceptual Image Lab (Code 130), the Scientific Visualization Studio Code (Code 606.4) and members of the Science Communications Support Office (Code 610). A group photo with the plaque is planned for mid-June. GESTAR congratulates everyone for their creativity and knowledge and ongoing efforts.
