Amendment 41 adds a new program element to ROSES-2019: C.25 The Akatsuki Participating Scientist Program (PSP). 


The Akatsuki PSP program aims to support and enhance the Akatsuki mission science objectives to understand the atmospheric circulation through global mapping with Akatsuki’s five cameras (spanning from ultraviolet to infrared wavelengths) and measurements of the atmospheric vertical structure with radio occultation techniques. The systematic and continuous observations by Akatsuki should provide a complete dataset of the Venusian atmospheric dynamics that complements the observations by Venus Express and prior missions to Venus.


Mandatory Notices of Intent are required by November 22, 2019 and proposals are due January 31, 2020. Proposals that are not preceded by a Notice of Intent will be returned without review.


On or about October 15, 2019, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2019” (NNH19ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
