The NASA Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) is uniquely poised to bring people together via the realm of science, where the pinnacle of success is sharing results with the world. NASA is seen as a leader in space science, making the SSERVI a natural moderator in the international conversation for the field.

SSERVI’s International Partnerships Program provides collaboration opportunities for researchers within the global science community, as well as the international education/ public outreach community. International partners are invited to participate in all aspects of the Institutes activities and programs on a no-exchange-of-funds basis.

Non-U.S. science organizations can propose to become either Associate or Affiliate members of the SSERVI on a no-exchange-of-funds basis. Affiliate partnerships are with non-government institutions; the majority of agreements will be Affiliate. Associate partnerships are government-to-government agreements; this includes space agencies.

  • NLSI’s LUNAR team tests Kapton film for radio telescopes

    525

    The Dark Ages Lunar Interferometer (DALI) with polyimide foil and embedded low frequency dipoles will study the early Universe.NLSI’s LUNAR team is testing of a piece of Kapton film at the University of Colorado at Boulder under a vacuum of about 10^-7 torr. The objective of this month long test is to simulate the lunar conditions that the Kapton film will experience during a year on the moon. The vacuum chamber will be cycled between -150 and 100 degrees Celscius with each hot or cold cycle lasting 24 hours.
