NASA to Implement Structural Change on Astrobiology Program

1 min read

NASA has announced a new programmatic infrastructure aiming to foster research collaboration within the space agency's Astrobiology Program.

The agency said Nov. 1 it is replacing its virtual Astrobiology Institute with several research coordination networks by the end of 2019.

The shift would only alter the type of coordination between researchers, and would not change the program's general goal.

The program's new infrastructure is a response to study-based findings recommending that NASA support cross-divisional research via RCNs.

Astrobiology has been among NASA’s 10 priorities since last year.
