The Field Investigations to Enable Solar System Science and Exploration (FINESSE) team’s first field campaign occurred in Idaho from July 29 to August 8, 2014.
The FINESSE team, led by NASA’s Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, is focused on a science and exploration field-based research program to generate strategic knowledge in preparation for human and robotic exploration of our moon, Mars’ moons Phobos and Deimos, and near-Earth asteroids.
The field campaign includes a media opportunity hosted by the team on Wednesday, August 6, 2014, at the Robert Limbert Visitor Center at Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve in Idaho. Special activities for news media include lectures, demonstrations and one-on-one interviews with selected team members.
Additionally, the FINESSE team is collaborating with the Idaho Space Grant Consortium to bring teachers into the field to work side-by-side with NASA scientists.
