NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts program is possibly the best place to get confederate funding

The NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts program is possibly the best place to get confederate funding for a plan that looks crazy — because the program managers think it may be just exciting enough to work.

Researchers making the “Phase I” cut are awarded about $125,000 above 9 months to expand their plan , be it astonishing  or simply technically hard. If remarkable development is made or the idea is otherwise found to be promising, a second “Phase II” investment of up to $500,000 can be made at NASA’s choice.

According to NIAC program executive Jason Derleth, the present year was “especially fierce, with about 230 proposals and only 25 winners.”

A noteworthy amount of Phase II awards were also made (you may remember some from last year’s selections).
I have gathered most of them here with clarifications in the simplest language I could summon — click on to see what NASA thinks the future of space study might look like.
