Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute

NASA Cooperative Agreement Notice: Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute

"NASA is soliciting the submission of multiinstitutional team-based proposals for research as participating members of the Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI). The Institute will succeed the current NASA Lunar Science Institute. Proposals must clearly articulate an innovative, broadly based research program addressing basic and applied scientific questions fundamental to understanding the nature of the Moon, Near Earth Asteroids, the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos, and the near space environments of these target bodies, to enable human exploration of these destinations. Proposals in the areas of astrophysics and heliophysics that are enabled through human and robotic exploration of the Target Bodies are also solicited through this Cooperative Agreement Notice."

Keith's note: It is important to note that this renamed and expanded "virtual institute" based on the existing NASA Lunar Science Institute (NLSI) will continue to be managed at NASA ARC. ARC pioneered the implementation of virtual institutes back in the late 1990s with the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI) and later with the NLSI.
