ROSES 2012 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 31: New Opportunity in ROSES-12 via Appendix C.27, LADEE Guest Investigator Program

Description: This amendment creates a new opportunity in ROSES 2012 under Appendix C.27, the LADEE Guest Investigator Program. Notices of Intent are requested by February 22, 2013, and proposals are due by March 29, 2013.

This solicitation is for investigations in the LADEE Guest Investigator Program (GIP).  The goals of the program are to: a) enhance the scientific return from the LADEE mission by broadening participation in the mission and b) augment the existing LADEE science team to include new members conducting investigations that broaden and/or complement the funded Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-Investigator (Co-I)-led investigations, thus maximizing the contribution of LADEE to the future exploration and scientific understanding of the Moon. Because the intention is to enhance and broaden the scientific return, investigations submitted by LADEE PIs and Co-Is will not be considered.
Selected Guest Investigators (GIs) will become members of the LADEE science team and be required to fulfill some of the same responsibilities as those of current science team members. The selected GIs will coordinate their activities and analyses with the LADEE Mission Project Scientist, Instrument Principal Investigators (PIs) and their teams, and NASA Program Scientist, and they will be bound by team agreements.  The selected GI activities and analyses will, thus, be coordinated with the LADEE science team to achieve the essential scientific objectives of their GI investigation, within the scope and resources of the LADEE project, and ensure dissemination of the results of the investigation to the scientific community and the general public.

Notices of Intent are requested by February 22, 2013, and proposals are due by March 29, 2013.

This call will appear on the NSPIRES web page on or about Friday December 21st 2012. Look for it on the tables of due dates. Table 2 of individual programs in order of due date can be found at and Table 3 of individual programs organized by subject area can be found at
