NASA, Brazilian Space Agency Forge Climate, Space Weather Research Alliance; Charles Bolden Comments

deep_spaceNASA and the Brazilian Space Agency have agreed to collaborate on heliophysics, space weather and climate research efforts.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and Brazilian Space Agency President Jose Raimundo Braga Coelho inked the agreements at NASA’s Washington, D.C.-based headquarters, NASA said Tuesday.

“This partnership encompasses critical work not only to understand our planet, but also to help develop the leaders of tomorrow, and we look forward to many positive outcomes,” Bolden said.

Under the arrangement, Brazil will receive space weather data from NASA’s Van Allen Probes mission for processing and participate in the Magnetospheric Multiscale mission meant to study the sun’s impact on the Earth’s space environment.

Brazil will also work with NASA to provide Earth and space-based observations for teachers, students and scientists to study the environment under the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment program.

Brazilian students will also have internship opportunities at a NASA center.
