1. Science Nuggets How-To Guide

    What is a NASA Nugget? And How to Make a Good One

    Each week, Planetary Science Division provides one science discovery/story “Nugget” for distribution through upper NASA management. Help us feed the pipeline! Highlight your significant NAI publications by providing it to us in the form of a nugget.

    Specific format – Images and text in a single PowerPoint slide (do NOT convert it to a pdf)
    • Text should give background information and explain the impact of the results to astrobiology – at about a Grade 8 level
    • Reference the paper, from a peer-reviewed journal
    • Image or simple graphic (artist concept) is required
