  The Applied Sciences Program, within the Science Mission Directorate (which replaced both the Office of Earth Science and the Office of Space Science), serves NASA and Society by expanding and accelerating the realization of societal and economic benefits from Earth science, information, and technology research and ://   funded first by NASA Headquarter's Office of Space Science and Applications and later by LMEPO. JPL generated a series of documents titled "SEI Science Payloads," informally referred to in house as the green book, under the project management of Richard Wallace. The final edition of the green book was published in May as JPL Report D RPpdf.   In FY18, NASA initiated a hardware development program at MIT Lincoln Laboratory (MIT-LL) to enable a series of near-term space-based quantum communication demonstrations that leverage the agency’s significant investment in classical lasercom hardware pathfinders. Our program is focused on developing technology to enable /files/   NASA is advancing a laser-based technology designed to help spacecraft land on a proverbial dime for missions to the Moon and Mars. The technology will undergo testing on upcoming suborbital rocket launches with Blue Origin on its New Shepard rocket and ride to the Moon on several commercial landers as part of the Artemis program. Simultaneously, companies are using the

  The book is based on interviews with 23 of the 24 astronauts who flew to the moon during the Apollo program. Chaikin's book is fun and well researched, and packed full of tidbits of information   Welcome! The NASA Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program recently upgraded the NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS), including NTRS-Registered, to enhance discoverability of, and access to, NASA-funded STI. We appreciate your patience during this transition. If you need immediate assistance, please contact the STI Program NASA CCRPP. The FY21 NASA Civilian Commercialization Readiness Pilot Program (CCRPP) application period is October 26th to December 7th, Eligible firms must secure funding from one or more investors, and NASA will match the investments with SBIR/STTR program funds between $, and $3 million for each CCRPP   NASA History. The National Aeronautics and Space Act of (Pub.L. ) created the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Section (a)(3) of the Act directs NASA "to provide for the widest practicable and appropriate dissemination of information concerning NASA activities and the results thereof."

NASA implemented the Laser Risk Reduction Program (LRRP) to identify and address capability-gap areas where new devices or processes could yield high-reliability mission-ready parts, and to airframe and power plant: A&P: attitude and pointing: A&PS: Administration and Program Support (MSFC directorate) A&R: assembly and recycle: A&R: automation and robotics: A&RC: application and resource control: A&S: alignment and stabilization: A&SS: alignment and stabilization subsystem: A&T: assembly and test: A&TA: assembly and test area: A ?program=shuttle&searchall=true.   This program element has been responsible for major technology breakthroughs in removing atmospheric distortions from laser beams and other-optical transmissions, in producing high resolution optical imagery of distant objects, in fabricating small relatively high-power-laser diode phased arrays, and in furthering the understanding of HPM   "The Russian Space Program."
