NASA to create an open science program to improve reproducibility and equity in exoplanet research. He named Tansu Daylan, assistant professor of physics in the Arts and Sciences department at Washington University in St.
Open science promises to make NASA research and data more collaborative, accessible, inclusive and transparent for everyone, from scientists and students to city administrators and citizens, according to NASA's April 11 statement. NASA's Open Source Science Initiative is working to transform how quickly and openly scientific knowledge is accessible by funding new educational opportunities. NASA is funding a five-year Transformation to Open Science (TOPS) initiative to kickstart the initiative and support researchers working with NASA and other organizations in applying open science.
The goal of Daylan's TOPS project is to create a new "ScienceCore" curriculum related to exoplanet research. This curriculum will be used to supplement existing educational materials and teach NASA Earth and space science researchers about open science methods and technology. To better understand planet formation, evolution and migration, his own work on exoplanets focuses on identifying and characterizing these planets.
“We are building an open science ecosystem for a more equitable, meaningful and effective scientific future,” Yatza Luna-Cruz, TOPS Education program manager, said in the NASA announcement. “Open science aims to ensure that scientific knowledge is inclusive, reproducible and accessible to all. TOPS is an important step towards encouraging the participation of historically underrepresented populations in NASA science.
