STARKVILLE — NASA has awarded grants to nine universities for advanced development activities for the nation’s next heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS).
The agency is providing approximately $2.25 million that will be shared by all the proposals under this NASA Research Announcement to seek solutions to evolve the launch vehicle from its initial lift capability to a larger, future version of the rocket that would carry humans into space.
“Partnering with academia on SLS advanced concepts brings new ideas and vitality to NASA and expands the SLS team of rocket scientists beyond just the agency,” said William Gerstenmaier , associate administrator for Human Exploration and Operations at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Among the selected universities and their proposals is Mississippi State University for “Algorithmic Enhancements for High-Resolution Hybrid RANS-LES Using Loci-CHEM.”
