Dear colleague,


You are cordially invited to a virtual town hall meeting hosted by NASA’s Science Mission Directorate on Thursday, July 9 at 3 p.m. ET. Associate Administrator for Science Thomas Zurbuchen and other members of the Science leadership team will discuss updates on the agency’s science activities and welcome questions from the community. 


As you may be aware, the Space Biology and Physical Sciences programs within the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate’s Space Life and Physical Sciences Research and Applications (SLPSRA) Division are in the process of transitioning to the Science Mission Directorate where they will constitute the Biological and Physical Sciences (BPS) Division. The Human Research Program will remain in HEOMD.


All are welcome to attend the town hall, but it will be of most interest to members of the Space Biology and Physical Sciences community. I hope that you can join us. Details may be found below.




Craig Kundrot

Director, SLPSRA (soon to be Director, BPS)
