NASA Releases New Physical Sciences Informatics Research Announcement for Established Researchers and Graduate Students

Sep 28, 2018

NASA has released the NASA Research Announcement (NRA) titled “Use of the NASA Physical Sciences Informatics System – Appendix E,” which solicits ground-based research proposals to generate new scientific insights by utilizing experimental data residing in NASA’s Physical Sciences Informatics (PSI) system (http://psi.nasa.gov). This online database provides investigators access to the raw and processed experimental data from physical science reduced-gravity flight experiments conducted on the International Space Station, Space Shuttle flights, Free Flyers, or commercial cargo flights to and from the ISS, and from related ground-based studies.

The current call for proposals solicits proposals in the five research areas – Combustion Science, Complex Fluids, Fluid Physics, Fundamental Physics, and Materials Science – for which eligible experimental data will be available in the PSI by the proposal due date of December 14, 2018. Data from 55 investigations are eligible for this NRA. The call is open to two types of investigators: established researchers and graduate students. Anticipated award amounts, eligibility requirements, and further instructions for both types of investigators are provided in the solicitation document, which is available at: https://tinyurl.com/NASA-PSI-E
