Report Series: Committee on biological and physical sciences in space: Using Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) to achieve lunar biological and physical science sbjectives: Proceedings of a workshop.
Pool R, Rapporteur.
Washington, DC: The National Academies Press, 2021. 56 p.
https://doi.org/10.17226/26378
Note: Publication description: "After several decades since the last human visit, NASA is planning to return to the Moon, this time not only to visit but also to carry out extensive scientific experiments, establish a habitat occupied by astronauts, and learn lessons that will help in preparations for the eventual establishment of a human presence on Mars. The Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) program, overseen by NASA, will provide transport to the Moon for scientists who want to carry out research on the lunar surface or in orbit around the Moon. Recognizing the need to introduce and explain the CLPS program to researchers, the Committee on Biological and Physical Sciences in Space of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop on March 24-25, 2021 entitled 'Using Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) to Achieve Lunar Biological and Physical Science Objectives.' The organization of the workshop was guided by the following question: Looking at the period of time prior to the release of the next decadal survey, how can this community support and utilize CLPS to address areas of research? This workshop proceedings summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop sessions." This article may be obtained online without charge.

PI: U.M. Fischer
Note: From the introduction: "This paper describes programmatic research to examine the impact of media-specific communication protocols that were developed to mitigate the problems associated with asynchronous communication. The first study was conducted in a research lab at a large west-coast university. The effectiveness of the protocols was also assessed in two additional venues, the Human Experimental Research Analog (HERA) at NASA Johnson Space Center, and NEEMO, the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations undersea analog facility off the Florida Keys."
