NASA Seeks Members For The Mars Sample Receiving Project Measurement Definition Team
NASA and ESA are planning to charter a Measurement Definition Team (MDT) to assess the measurement and instrumentation needs for the high-containment Mars Sample Return Sample Receiving Project facility to process samples brought back from Mars and accomplish sample safety assessment, curation, and science.
There will be an open call for membership, and early career individuals are encouraged to apply. We expect the applications for this committee to be accepted in late spring 2023, with an anticipated committee timeline between September 2023 and July 2024.
If you are interested in receiving more information as it becomes available, please register your interest by signing up on the Mars Sample Receiving Project Measurement Definition Team 1 – Indication of Interest form hosted at: https://science.nasa.gov/solar-system.
Note: emails are only being collected for the purpose of sharing information about this MDT, and the list will be deleted once the group has been formed.
Questions may be directed to Lindsay E. Hays at email@example.com.
