Workshop: Nebulae - Deep-Space Computing Clouds Part 2

We will continue to explore how to “Nebula-enable” missions, such that there is sufficient storage and computational capability for large quantities of data to be gathered, pre-processed and selected for optimal downlink to make the most of the bits that the Deep Space Network (DSN) can support.

Telepresence Final Report

Final Report: Space Science Opportunities Augmented by Exploration Telepresence

This report describes the conceptual and practical foundations of low-latency telepresence (LLT), opportunities for using derivative approaches for scientific exploration of planetary surfaces, and circumstances under which employing telepresence would be especially productive for planetary science.

COVID-19: Identifying Unique Opportunities for Earth System Science

The goal of this workshop is to quickly assemble an interdisciplinary team of scientists, researchers and engineers to address the impact of COVID-19 response on the climate system, evaluate the system recovery over the next 1 - 5 years, formulate the hypotheses, and identify the measurements that can be obtained, leveraged and coordinated to test these hypotheses.
