The 35th Annual NASA Planetary Science Summer School in Mission Design
Applications close Tuesday, March 28 | School begins May 11th and May 25th (two sessions)
In NASA Science Mission Design Schools, you will learn the development of a hypothesis-driven robotic space mission in a concurrent engineering environment. Get an in-depth, first-hand look at mission design, life cycle, costs, schedule & inherent trade-offs.
To broaden your understanding, you are encouraged to take on science and engineering roles outside your normal area of expertise. With workload of a rigorous 3-credit graduate level course, you will act as a science mission team during the first 10 weeks of preparatory webinars, then spend the culminating week mentored by JPL’s Advance Project Design “Team X” to refine the mission concept design & present it to a mock NASA expert review board.
Two sessions will be held, with session #1 taking place from May 11th – August 4th and session #2 taking place May 25th – August 18th.
