ROSES-14 Amendment 32: Release of a new call under D.11 NuSTAR Guest Observer – Cycle 1

The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) Small Explorer (SMEX) mission is the first orbiting telescope to focus light in the high energy X-ray region of the electromagnetic spectrum (E > 10 keV), with an effective bandpass of 3 – 79 keV. The observatory provides a combined improvement in sensitivity and spatial/spectral resolution by factors of 10 to 100 over previous missions that have operated at these energies. The NuSTAR Guest Observer (GO) Program solicits proposals for basic research relevant to the NuSTAR mission. The initial round of Guest Observations (Cycle 1) will commence on or about April 1, 2015, and last for a nominal period of 12 months. Further details on the Cycle 1 program may be found on the NuSTAR Guest Observer Program website ( Observing time will be made available to scientists at both U.S. and non-U.S. institutions. 

NOIs are not requested. The due date for proposals is November 25, 2014 

On or about August 26, 2014, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES)-2014” (NNH14ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:

Programmatic information may be obtained from the NuSTAR Program Scientist, Louis Kaluzienski, at Technical questions may be directed to the NuSTAR Mission Scientist, Craig Markwardt, at the NuSTAR Guest Observer Program Office at
