The Solar System Exploration Data Services Office (Code 690.1) serves NASA Goddard's Solar System Exploration Division as a key interface for coordinating data management and archiving plans within NASA's Science Mission. The Office operates the NASA Space Science Data Coordinated Archive (NSSDCA) as a permanent archive for data associated with NASA missions that explore the Universe, Solar System, and Sun-Earth System and provides requested management support to the science active archive centers.
The SSEDSO also has one active archive function: management of the Planetary Data System (PDS) . The SSEDSO maintains the necessary in-house expertise to support these and other data service activities, including those related to advanced information and storage technologies for distributed and intelligent data systems. The SSEDSO also conducts programs in education and public outreach. Read more about the SSEDSO.
