NASA Frontier Development Lab 2017

FDL brings together teams of experts in the physical sciences and specialists in data science and machine learning for an intense 8-week concentrated study on topics important to NASA – and to humanity’s future. The 8-week format encourages rapid iteration and prototyping to create outputs with meaningful application, papers and conference posters. The participants are masters, doctorate, or post-doc researchers in: Planetary Science, Heliophysics, Astronomy, Planetary Geology, Remote Sensing, or Data Science, Software Engineering, or Advanced Statistics. Problem areas this year are: Planetary Defense: Near-Earth Object 3D shape modeling or Comet detection; Space Weather: Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) or Solar-Terrestrial Interactions; Space Resources: Lunar Water or Asteroid Prospecting. Participants are hosted at NASA Ames Research Center and the SETI Institute. All participants are paid and provided accommodation and transport in Silicon Valley.
