National Aeronautics and Space Administration: Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences

by:

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is the US government's executive branch agency responsible for the country's civilian space program, aeronautics and aerospace research. Ever since it was established in the year 1958, NASA has been the world leader in pioneering the future of space exploration, scientific discover and aeronautics research.

In line with NASA's goals and objectives, the agency has recently established the Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) program for the year 2011.

The ROSES program encourages interested institutions to submit proposals that involve ground-based research and technology investigations that seek to comprehend naturally occurring phenomena, both in the Earth and in space; as well as changes in the Earth system; and finally Earth and space science-related advances that would support the agency's goals involving in-depth human and robotic exploration of the planet Mars and the Moon.

In addition, NASA has also established its preferred outcomes for the ROSES 2011 program, in line with those pursued by the NASA Science Mission Directorate (NASA SMD):

a) Improve and enhance earth system science to meet the complexities of current and future climate and environmental changes

b) Comprehend the Sun, along with its interactions with the Earth and the rest of the solar system

c) Ascertain the content, origin and evolution of the solar system; at the same time exploring the possibilities of life elsewhere   (continued...)
