NASA Spaceward Bound – India Expedition 2016
The Spaceward Bound Program is an educational program developed at NASA Ames Research Center. More information here. The objective is for participating scientific researchers, educators and students to visit remote and extreme environments in different parts of the world and conduct astrogeological/biological experiments, make observations and learn about the origin, sustenance and adaptation of living organisms within such biospheres.
The Blue Marble Space Institute of Science (BMSIS) Internship Program
BMSIS is pioneering a new internship program model. Alongside cutting-edge scientific investigations, students are also exposed to training in Communication as well as Ethics. The modern scientist requires excellent communication skills. It is increasingly necessary for scientists to clearly communicate the value of their science to the public and to policy makers, to write compelling proposals for funding, and to communicate their findings at scientific conferences. Communication is thus a pivotal skill in the success of a scientific career.
