Up to $4 million in funding from the National Science Foundation will be available for fluid dynamics, particulate and multiphase processes, combustion and fire systems, and thermal transport research aboard the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory
Kennedy Space Center, Fla., November 7, 2018 (CASIS PR) — The International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory and the National Science Foundation (NSF) today announced a “Transport Phenomena” joint solicitation wherein researchers from the fluid dynamics, particulate and multiphase processes, thermal transport, and combustion and fire system communities will have the ability to leverage resources onboard the space station.
Up to $4 million will be awarded for multiple research investigations to support flight projects to the ISS National Laboratory. Previously, the ISS National Lab and the NSF partnered on two fluid dynamics/multiphase processes solicitations, and one funding opportunity focused on combustion and thermal transport. This new funding opportunity will combine the previous scientific disciplines for researchers in an effort to provide a broad range of research applications within the microgravity environment of the space station.
Through this partnership, the ISS National Lab and NASA will facilitate hardware implementation and on-orbit access to the microgravity research platform. NSF will fund the selected projects ...
