Thriving in Space: Decadal Survey for the Biological and Physical Sciences in Space Public Release

September 12, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Space Biology on ISS

Research in Biological and Physical Sciences in Space (BPS) provides the critical scientific and technological foundations that make space exploration possible. As humanity looks towards the Moon and Mars for future missions, this work is needed to help astronauts adapt and live in the harsh environments of space.

Thriving in Space, a new National Academies’ decadal survey, provides a roadmap for increasing national investment in BPS research, from experiments to infrastructure to education. The report identifies key scientific questions, priorities, and ambitious research campaigns that will enable human space exploration and transform our understanding of how the universe works.

Learn more about the report by joining us on Tuesday, September 12, 2023 from 10:30am-12:00pm ET. During the event, decadal survey co-chairs Robert Ferl and Krystyn Van Vliet will highlight the key findings and recommendations from the report and take questions from the audience.

Participants are invited to attend in person at the Keck building in Washington, D.C. or online via webcast.

Registration is required for in-person attendees, but is optional for online attendees. You can watch the webcast and submit questions for our speakers on the [event page].
