NASA’s Flight Opportunities Program Partners with EPSCoR, Launches Community Learning Initiative

EDWARDS, Calif. (NASA PR) — Flight Opportunities has partnered with NASA’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program to provide access to suborbital flight tests for the EPSCoR community.

Through an amendment to the existing 2021 EPSCoR International Space Station (ISS) Flight Opportunity solicitation, EPSCoR jurisdictions will be able to propose using suborbital flights to further their EPSCoR-funded research.

Proposals are due by January 7, 2021. Visit NSPIRES for more details.

Flight Opportunities Community Learning Initiative

The new Flight Opportunities Community Learning initiative is an effort to capture, organize, and communicate the lessons and experiences of suborbital researchers.

We aim to create opportunities for the community to hear from subject matter experts on best practices for preparing for suborbital flight tests as well as to connect informally with fellow researchers, flight providers, and program staff to share information.  

The Community of Practice Webinar Series is the first program for this effort. Our first session will be a conversation with long-time Flight Opportunities researcher Dr. Steven Collicott, who will share knowledge from his extensive flight testing experience. We hope you will join us as we exchange ideas on optimizing the experiences of current and prospective program participants.
