Well it turns out that NASA can’t spend a penny of taxpayer dollars on advertising. In fact the military is the only government agency that is allowed to have ad campaigns.
The agency has nearly 500 social-media accounts across multiple social networks that are managed by employees at 10 different field centers. That's a lot of tweets and Facebook updates. In April, NASA's Twitter account -- which has some 4.4 million followers -- was awarded its second consecutive "Shorty award" for the best government use of social media.

Why would NASA register a website via whoisguard?
And this website was only registered yesterday (oct 1st), surely if this announcement was planned, and the website was being working on and currently unreleased, they would have registered and been working on it before the gov shutdown?
This sounds more like someone wanting to cash in the gov shutdown hype

Looks like a scam to capture names and email address...be wary.
The Facebook page seems to imply something involving mars and curiosity. Breaking: MARS HAS BE VERIFIED TO POSSIBLE HAVE HAD OCEANS... .
Maybe not a scam. Twitter has verified the account meaning its probably not fraudulentedit on 2-10-2013 by MDDoxs because: (no reason given)
Ah yes....the ol' "big announcement from NASA" thread.
Those of us who have been on ATS for more than a week have seen this post over and over.
IF there's an announcement it will be something mundane that only the nerdiest of scientists will find interesting. There will be nothing Earth shaking or shattering. I will bet my entire life savings on it. I'm dead serious.
Threads like this are as common and pointless as the ol' "look at this thing that I'm too stupid to realize is just a rock on Mars" threads.
Wait a couple weeks, scoop up hundreds if not thousands of email addresses, and NASA comes out, states the site isn't theirs, the owners shut it down and walk away with an email list to sell to third parties for science-related advertising.
