NASA-NSF partnership on dusty plasma microgravity research: Plasma Kristall-4 facility on board the Int'l Space Station

The NSF Directorates for Mathematical & Physical Sciences and Geosciences, the NSF Office of International Science and Engineering, jointly with the NASA Space Life and Physical Sciences Research and Applications Division, have issued a Research Announcement: "Research Opportunities in Fundamental Physics - NASA/NSF Partnership on Science of Dusty Plasmas: Utilizing the PK-4 Facility on board the International Space Station” [see: http://tinyurl.com/NNH16ZTT002N <http://tinyurl.com/NNH16ZTT002N>]. 

This Research Announcement solicits science research proposals from U.S. investigators for research that can be performed on or is directly related to the joint European Space Agency – Russian Federal Space Agency Plasma Krystall-4 (PK-4) experimental facility on board the International Space Station.  The Research Announcement also solicits research proposals for ground investigations related to potential follow-on microgravity experiments to study properties of dusty plasmas and related strongly-coupled many-body systems. Participation is open to all categories of U.S. institutions, including educational institutions, industry, nonprofit organizations, and Government agencies
