Welcome to NASA DEVELOP Integrating NASA's Earth observations to help meet the challenges of environmental change and improve life on our planet. NASA has selected four Discovery Program investigations to develop concept studies for new missions. Artist concept of the solar system. One of four concepts being considered for a Discovery Program mission, Trident would investigate one of the solar system's most unusual worlds. Mission Name: Mars 2020 Rover Name: Perseverance Main Job: The Perseverance rover will seek signs of ancient life and collect rock and soil samples for possible return to Earth.

New NASA FY20 MPP Forms are available for download. NASA recently announced that it has selected four science investigations as a step in choosing one or two missions for flight opportunities in the 2020’s as part of its Discovery program. A University of Arizona-led mission proposal to one of Jupiter's moons is among the four finalists for the next $500 million Discovery mission, NASA announced today.

The proposed VERITAS mission to Venus is one of the finalists for NASA's Discovery Program. (Updated on July 1, 2020) As we celebrate the successful launch of the Dragon Crew Spacecraft and resuable Falcon-9 Rocket, take a look back at the partnership between NASA and SpaceX leading up to the launch date.

NASA. Watch the best moments in the NASA and SpaceX journey to liftoff of the historic launch from Discovery's Space Launch LIVE. The four finalists will now embark on a one-year study Short for Venus Emissivity, Radio Science, InSAR, Topography & Spectroscopy, VERITAS is being considered for selection under NASA ’s Discovery Program and would be managed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California. Discovery is an ongoing program that offers the scientific community the opportunity to assemble a team and design exciting, focused investigations that complement NASA… For more information on NASA’s MPP, please visit our webpage: https://osbp.nasa.gov/mpp. 2020 Summer Preview Read More ... 2020 Spring DEVELOPer of the Term.

Four proposals were selected to move to the next stage of NASA’s Discovery Program By Mary Beth Griggs Feb 13, 2020, 5:45pm EST Share this story NASA and SpaceX completed a launch escape demonstration of the company’s Crew Dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket on Jan. 19, 2020. Among these are the Trident and DAVINCI+ mission concepts. Get the latest updates on NASA missions, watch NASA TV live, and learn about our quest to reveal the unknown and benefit all humankind. The project’s partners include Lockheed Martin, the Italian Space Agency, the German Space Agency, and the French Space Agency. Launch Window: July 30 - Aug. 15, 2020 Launch Location: Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida Landing: Feb. 18, 2021 Landing Site: Jezero Crater, Mars Mission Duration: At least one Mars year (about 687 Earth days) The Launch of the Rebooted NASA Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP) is here.

NASA recently announced that it has selected four science investigations as a step in choosing one or two missions for flight opportunities in the 2020’s as part of its Discovery program. Solicitation Number: NNH19ZDA010O. NASA ’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is releasing the 2019 Announcement of Opportunity (AO) for Discovery Program mission investigations.The Discovery Program conducts Principal Investigator (PI)-led space science investigations in SMD ’s planetary programs under a not-to-exceed cost cap for the PI-Managed Mission Cost (PMMC). The Discovery Program funds midsize principal-investigator-led spacecraft missions designed to unlock the mysteries of the solar system and our origins. The Discovery Program is a series of Solar System exploration missions funded by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) through its Planetary Missions Program Office.Each mission has a cost cap, at a lower level than a mission from NASA's New Frontiers or Flagship Programs.

Four new missions are being considered to learn more about the strange and wondrous objects of our solar system as part of NASA’s Discovery Program. When NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft flew by Neptune's strange moon Triton three decades ago, it wrote a planetary science cliffhanger. Also, included are some new images from the successful launch on May 30th and dock with the ISS on May 31st. The test began at 10:30 a.m. EST with liftoff from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a mission to show the spacecraft’s capability to safely separate from the rocket in the unlikely event of an inflight emergency.
