Transforming Access to Astromaterial Data: NASA’s Astromaterials Data System: This Town Hall invites interested researchers to learn about NASA-JSC’s plans for the Astromaterials Data System (AstroMat) and engage in its design and development. AstroMat is envisioned to provide a comprehensive data system for sharing, accessing, and archiving of laboratory data generated by the study of NASA-JSC’s astromaterial collections, including the lunar, Antarctic meteorite, Cosmic Dust, Genesis, Hayabusa, Stardust, and Microparticle Impact collections. AstroMat will create a community platform that will allow investigators to share their data in compliance with funders’ and publishers’ data policies while providing new ways to explore and mine a comprehensive synthesis of past, present and future analytical data of astromaterials. Come learn about plans for AstroMat and provide input into the design and development of the system. For questions, please contact us at astromatdata@gmail.com. Lunch will be provided on a first come, first served basis.
