The DEIS is available at the NASA Mars 2020 NEPA Web site at: http:// www.nasa.gov/agency/nepa/ mars2020eis. SUMMARY: Interested parties are invited to submit comments on environmental issues and concerns, preferably in writing. Comments on the DEIS will be accepted until July 21, 2014, or no later than 45 days from the publication in the Federal Register of the U.S Environmental Protection Agency’s Notice of Availability of the Mars 2020 Mission DEIS, whichever is later. NASA will hold a virtual public meeting on June 26, 2014, during which the public is invited to participate in an open exchange of information and electronic submission of comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed Mars 2020 mission is planned for launch during the July-August 2020 time period from Kennedy Space Center (KSC) or Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS), Florida, on an expendable launch vehicle. The DEIS evaluates three alternatives in addition to the No Action Alternative. Under the Proposed Action (Alternative 1), the proposed Mars 2020 rover would utilize a radioisotope power system, a MultiMission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (MMRTG), to continually provide electrical power to the rover’s battery and heat for on board systems so the rover can operate and conduct science on the surface of Mars. Under Alternative 2, the proposed Mars 2020 rover would utilize solar energy as its source of electrical power to operate and conduct science on the surface of Mars. Under Alternative 3, the proposed Mars 2020 rover would utilize solar energy augmented by the thermal output from Light Weight Radioisotope Heater Units (LWRHUs) to help keep the rover’s on board systems at proper operating temperatures to conduct science on the surface of Mars. The DEIS assesses potential environmental impacts associated with a normal launch as well as a potential launch accident. These include E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1
