Abstract

NASA’s Science Mission Directorate is currently operating 57 robotic science missions and developing 27 more for launch. These space missions address the Nation’s highest priority and most compelling science questions from space. Missions are prioritized for NASA development either through the National Academy of Sciences decadal surveys or through the evaluation and selection of competitively peer reviewed proposals. Small missions tend to be in the latter category. NASA issues regular solicitations for small, PI-led mission proposals, and NASA’s announcements of opportunity are open to all categories of proposers.
