ROSES-15 Amendment 9: Change of due dates for D.7, K2 Guest Observer Cycle 3

Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Thursday, April 2, 2015

ROSES-15 Amendment 9: This amendment details the Campaign 9 Microlensing Science Team Call and changes the due dates for program element D.7 K2 Guest Observer Cycle 3. Step-1 proposals are due on June 2, 2015, and Step-2 proposals are due on July 1, 2015. 

Program element D.7 of ROSES-2015 solicits proposals for the acquisition and analysis of new scientific data from the K2 mission (http://keplerscience.arc.nasa.gov/K2). K2 repurposes the space-borne hardware and ground-based operations of the Kepler mission (http://keplerscience.arc.nasa.gov) for a pointed survey of predetermined locations along the ecliptic plane. The single, visible-wavelength instrument on board K2 provides high-precision photometry capability, with short cadence and long cadence modes (1 minute and 30 minute exposures), and provides a powerful tool for broadband variability analyses of planetary, stellar, extragalactic, and solar system sources.

This amendment details the Campaign 9 Microlensing Science Team Call in Section 1.2.1 and amends the due dates for proposals to allow for submission of target list to the spacecraft for an on-time start of Campaign 8. The due date for Step-1 proposals is June 2, 2015 and the due date for Step-2 proposals is July 1, 2015. New text is in bold and deleted text is struck through.

On or about April 2, 2015, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2015" (NNH15ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com  and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2015/ 

Technical questions concerning this program element may be directed to the Kepler Science Center at keplergo@mail.arc.nasa.gov

The NASA point of contact for programmatic information is debra.j.wallace@nasa.gov
