Not a local problem. From www.followuptime.com :

Quick Check for :: oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov (http (80))

Date  	City  	Country  	Time (s)  	Result
07/07/2009 13:13:31 	London 	United Kingdom 	2.7490 	Failed
07/07/2009 13:13:33 	Newark 	United States 	0.3432 	Failed
07/07/2009 13:13:36 	São Paulo 	Brazil 	0.4806 	Failed

and then locally:

$ host oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov
oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov is an alias for oceancolor.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov.

$ host -t ns sci.gsfc.nasa.gov
sci.gsfc.nasa.gov name server ns2.nasa.gov.
sci.gsfc.nasa.gov name server ns3.nasa.gov.
sci.gsfc.nasa.gov name server ns1.nasa.gov.

$ host oceancolor.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov ns1.nasa.gov.
Using domain server:
Name: ns1.nasa.gov.
Address: 198.116.4.189#53
Aliases:


Looks like NASA needs a hand with DNS administration. :)
