Fiscal Year
Defaults to search "All Reports FY04-present", which retrieves all tasks funded during the time period from FY2004-present. Tasks for each fiscal year are those "active"(funded) within that fiscal year, e.g., FY2019 covers 10/1/2018-9/30/2019.

Human Research Program Gaps *

Gaps in knowledge about characterizing the risk and ability to mitigate the risk represent the critical unknowns that need to be addressed to mitigate a risk and therefore serve to focus the areas of research work to address risk reduction milestones.

* based on Human Research Program Integrated Research Plan, Revision N, July 2022. Note that risks and gaps may change annually; historical data is preserved for projects ending before annual changes.

Human Research Program Risks *

Human spaceflight risks include physiological and performance effects from the hazards of spaceflight, such as altered gravity, radiation, and hostile environments, as well as unique challenges in medical support, human factors, and behavioral health support.

* based on Human Research Program Integrated Research Plan, Revision N, July 2022. Note that risks and gaps may change annually; historical data is preserved for projects ending before annual changes.
