LPI – Structuring Real-Time Science Support of Artemis Crewed Operations

February 24 - February 25

Virtual Session 8: February 24–25, 2021
Structuring Real-Time Science Support of Artemis Crewed Operations

When astronauts walked on the Moon during the Apollo program, scientists were embedded in the Flight Control Team (FCT). These scientists populated a science backroom, and they were responsible for helping direct science activities, including sampling, instrument deployment, and other exploration tasks. In this way, the science backroom was critical in maximizing the productivity of the Apollo missions. Part of the reason for their success was that the scientists were able to work closely with the flight controllers, astronauts, and other critical members of the Apollo Program before, during, and after the missions. In the same way, scientists will work with Artemis Program flight controllers, flight directors, astronauts, and spaceflight engineers to achieve mission success and maximize scientific productivity by ensuring that the Artemis lunar surface missions effectively and efficiently accomplish high-priority science objectives.

Abstracts are solicited from the community on the strategies for structuring a science backroom. Lessons learned from the Apollo Program, analog projects, and from other NASA missions (MER, MSL, etc.) are particularly encouraged. Refer to the Call for Abstracts tab for submission details.
