NASA has released the NASA Research Announcement (NRA) titled “Use of the NASA Physical Sciences Informatics System – Appendix F,” 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
Eligible experimental data will be available in the PSI by the proposal due date of December 16, 2019. Data from 63 investigations are eligible for this NRA. The call is open to two types of investigators: established researchers and graduate students.
