DoT, NASA use Web 2.0 to increase satisfaction

What makes one federal agency better than another in terms of worker contentment? One of Washington's good government groups did some additional digging in the wake of the federal "Best Places to Work" survey and found that better communication using social networking tools helped at least two agencies move up the list.

Grants Support Biomedical Research in Space

The National Institutes of Health has awarded the first new grants under the Biomedical Research on the International Space Station (or BioMed-ISS) initiative, a collaborative effort between NIH and NASA. Using a special microgravity environment that Earth-based laboratories cannot replicate, researchers will explore fundamental questions about important health issues, such as how bones and the immune system are weakened.

The National Laboratory at the International Space Station provides a virtually gravity-free - or microgravity - environment where the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie human diseases can be explored.

Scientists will conduct their experiments in two stages. The first is a ground-based preparatory phase to allow investigators to meet select milestones and technical requirements. The second is an Space Station experimental phase. That will include preparing the experiments for launch, working with astronauts to conduct them on the Space Station, and then performing subsequent data analyses on Earth.

NASA shows the way with e-mail consolidation

The space agency's experience in reducing the number of its e-mail systems could serve as a model for others who are going down a similar path. NASA's benefits include cost savings, better cybersecurity and scalability to deal with the expanding need for mobile access.

Crowdsourcing Solar Flare Predicition

When NASA scientists were stymied last year in trying to devise a formula for predicting solar flares, they took an unusual approach: They posted their problem online, and offered a prize to anyone who could solve it. One requirement: the person with the winning solution would have to fork over exclusive rights to the idea - in exchange for a $30,000 prize. 579 people considered the challenge, while only five submitted entries. The winner was a retired radio frequency engineer from New Hampshire who offered an algorithm that may be a first step in helping NASA predict when solar particles might endanger astronauts or spacecraft. Top officials within the General Services Administration and the Office of Management and Budget have called the contest the beginning of a huge movement. Now, the website challenge-dot-gov allows agencies to post challenges, create blogs and discussions, and reward winners with an array of incentives.
