Learn NASA Planetary Science
Mission Design from the Experts!
A 3-month NASA experience beyond grad school.
Applicants from diverse backgrounds encouraged!
Science & engineering doctoral candidates, recent PhDs, postdocs, & junior faculty who are U.S. Citizens or legal permanent residents (and a very limited number of Foreign Nationals from non-designated counties) are eligible. 
Offered by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, PSSS is a career development experience with a workload of a rigorous 3-hour graduate-level course. Learn the development of a hypothesis-driven planetary science robotic mission in a concurrent engineering environment while getting an in-depth, first-hand look at mission design, life cycle, costs, schedule & the trade-offs inherent in each.
Application Deadline: March 30, 2022
Session 1: May 9 – August 5
Session 2: May 23 – August 19
Spend 10 weeks in preparatory webinars acting as a science mission team. Then your final culminating week is mentored by JPL’s Advance Project Design Team to refine your mission concept design & present it to a mock expert review board.
The culminating week is typically at JPL, however in 2022 it is likely to be virtual due to Covid-19 pandemic conditions.
