NASA announces solicitation for the Apollo Next Generation Sample Analysis Program (ANGSA)
The goal of the ANGSA Program is to maximize the science derived from samples returned by the Apollo Program in preparation for future lunar missions anticipated in the 2020s and beyond. To achieve this, ANGSA solicits research on specially curated materials from the Apollo 15, 16, and 17 sample collections, which were returned to Earth in 1971-72.
The ANGSA program will consider only proposals that focus on the analysis of the following list of Apollo samples, although proposers are welcome to include other lunar samples in their studies to help understand the specially curated samples, that are defined as:
* Unopened vacuum-sealed Apollo samples
* Frozen Apollo Samples
* Apollo Samples stored in Helium
