The Water Planet

NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. In achieving this mission, NASA depends upon the private sector, educational institutions, and other nonprofit organizations for the greater part of its research needs. Therefore, NASA encourages the submission of unique and innovative unsolicited proposals which will further the agency's mission.

Message from Dr. Lynn Fenstermaker

New NASA EPSCoR and NASA Space Grant Consortium Project Director

It’s an honor to have been selected as the Director of these two great NASA programs. I truly look forward to working with NSHE faculty and students to expand Nevada’s STEM research infrastructure and educational opportunities to help meet the NASA mission and goals. Both of these programs have fostered successful research and education projects for Nevada since their inception.

Moving into the future, I look forward to helping grow Space Grant projects so that more of Nevada’s college and K-12 students can become excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and participate in providing a better future for Nevada, NASA and our nation. Through the NASA EPSCoR opportunities, I’m excited to help our NSHE faculty improve their research knowledge base and gain new infrastructure so that they can competitively participate in current and future research challenges of benefit to NASA.



The NASA EPSCoR program strengthens the research capabilities of jurisdictions that have not had a competitive advantage to participate in aerospace and aerospace-related research activities. EPSCoR provides eligible jurisdictions with funding opportunities to develop a more active research base by involving their academic and research institutions. Nevada began working with a NASA EPSCoR planning grant in 1999. Through this grant, Nevada has the opportunity to establish research and development competitiveness and strengthen its economy through the expansion of aerospace technology.
