Greetings All,

Please see the opportunity below to participate in the NASA Planetary Science Summer School!  If you have any interest in space missions, then this is an excellent opportunity to learn about the NASA mission design process.  For those of you who work with remote sensing satellites data, this would also be an excellent experience as the JPL Team X works with outside agencies to develop concept mission designs as well.
If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me as I am an alumnae of the course.

Dear alumnus of NASA’s Planetary Science Summer School,
We are offering the 26th annual Planetary Science Summer School experience at JPL, and would appreciate your help in getting the word out to colleagues and associates to help us gather a qualified pool of candidates.
Please send the message below to your contacts who may have an interest or who can suggest other qualified candidates to apply.
Best wishes for a healthy and productive 2014!

2014 NASA Planetary Science Summer School Applications Open

NASA is accepting applications from science and engineering post-docs, recent PhDs, and doctoral students for its 26th Annual Planetary Science Summer School, which will be held in three separate sessions in summer 2014 (June 16-20,  July 14-18, and August 11-15) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.

During the program and pre-session webinars, student teams will carry out the equivalent of an early mission concept study, prepare a proposal authorization review presentation, present it to a review board, and receive feedback.  By the end of the session, students will have a clearer understanding of the life cycle of a space mission; relationships between mission design, cost, and schedule; and the tradeoffs necessary to stay within cost and schedule while preserving the quality of science.   The 2014 sessions will address planetary exploration missions needing power system trade-offs, including the use of solar electric vs. Multi-mission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators (MMRTG). The session in  August will have a targeted focus on spacecraft power systems.
Applications are due April 1, 2014. Partial financial support is available for a limited number of individuals. Further information is available at  http://pscischool.jpl.nasa.gov.
