Planetary Science Nuggets


Planetary Science Nuggets are PowerPoint slides that have been provided to NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) Planetary Science Division by members of the scientific community to highlight important science results or mission activities. A subset of these submissions are selected by the Planetary Science Division to be presented to SMD leadership and, potentially, NASA leadership, OSTP and the White House. The collection of those selected Nuggets is available online.
