      NASA Planetary Science Summer School

      Applications are due May 1, 2008, for NASA's 20th Annual Planetary Science
      Summer School, which will hold two sessions this summer, July
      21-25 and August 4-8, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena,
      California.

      Science and engineering recent PhDs, post-doctoral and doctoral students
      with a strong interest in careers in planetary exploration are
      encouraged to
      apply. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or resident aliens ("green card"
      holders) and must be living within the U.S. at the time of application.

      The student teams will develop the equivalent of an early concept study
      responsive to a typical NASA Announcement of Opportunity for robotic
      missions, prepare a presentation for a proposal authorization review,
      present it to a review board, and receive feedback. At the end of the
      week,
      students will have a clearer understanding of the relationships among
      mission design, cost, and schedule, and the trade-offs necessary to stay
      within cost and schedule while preserving the opportunity to acquire
      high-quality science. They will also understand the lifecycle of a
      robotic
      space mission.

      Partial financial support is available to a limited number of
      individuals to
      help defray the expense of travel and lodging only.
      Applications are to be submitted electronically by May 1, 2008.

      For further information and to fill out an application, visit

      Anita M. Sohus, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, M/S 111-B29, 4800 Oak Grove
      Drive, Pasadena, CA 91109; phone 818-354-6613; e-mail
