Meeting of Humanities Panel, 49771-49772 [2019-20460]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 184 / Monday, September 23, 2019 / Notices The CO2 Conversion Challenge is devoted to fostering the development of CO2 conversion systems that can effectively produce singular or multiple molecular compounds identified as desired microbial manufacturing ingredients and/or that provide a significant advancement of physicochemical CO2 conversion for the production of useful molecules. I. Prize Amounts Phase 2 of the CO2 Conversion Challenge will award to up to three (3) top teams, who will receive prizes from a prize purse of $750,000 (sevenhundred fifty thousand dollars). Teams will be required to submit: (1) An application containing a description of the physiochemical conversion system they will build to demonstrate the production of carbon-based molecular compounds and (2) a video of the system in operation that clearly depicts the overall component and operation of the system. Upon completion of a phone interview with a judge, teams will be required to host a site visit by a judge where the operation of the system is demonstrated and a sample to be analyzed is produced and collected. The team’s product will be examined using an independent chemical analysis to determine if any of the targeted compounds are present. Weighting factor Challenge targeted compounds jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES D-Glucose ............................................. Other 6-carbon sugars (D-hexoses) ..... 5-carbon sugars (D-pentoses) .............. 4-carbon sugars (D-tetroses) ................ 3-carbon sugars (D-trioses) .................. D-Glycerol ............................................. 100 80 50 10 5 5 If enantiomers of the targeted compounds are present, the mass of each will be measured. The total score will be calculated by taking the mass of the most desired enantiomer ‘‘D’’ form minus the mass of the undesired ‘‘L’’ form. For example, if equal amounts of ‘‘D’’ and ‘‘L’’ glucose are found, then no points will be given for that compound. The three highest scoring teams will be awarded the following prizes: First place—$350,000 (three hundred fifty thousand U.S. dollars) Second place—$200,000 (two hundred thousand U.S. dollars) Third place—$100,000 (one hundred thousand U.S. dollars) In the event of a tie score between two or more teams, the corresponding award(s) will be divided evenly among the teams. For example, a tie for first place will result in both teams receiving ($350,000 + $200,000)/2 = $275,000. $100,000 bonus prizes awarded to as many three (3) teams. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:55 Sep 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 Bonus Prize—System Effectiveness for Space Mission Applications: The information provided in the Demonstration Application as well as information gathered during the on-site judging event will be used by the judging panel to assess the overall system effectiveness for future application in space missions. A total of $100,000 will be available for bonus prizes in amounts determined by the judges for up to 3 teams. Teams do not need to win one of the contest prizes to be awarded a Bonus Prize. The top score will receive $50,000 and the next two highest scores will receive $25,000. A minimum score of 65 points is required to be eligible for a bonus prize. II. Eligibility To be eligible to win a prize, competitors must; (1) NASA welcomes applications from individuals, companies, or other entities that have an official legal status under applicable law (state, federal or country) and that are in good standing in the jurisdiction under which they are organized with the following restrictions: (a) Individuals participating singly or in a group must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States and must be 18 years of age or older.
