Amendment 7: Due Date delayed for Appendix C.20, the Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets (ASTEP) Program.
The Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets (ASTEP) program solicits proposals for investigations focused on exploring the Earth’s extreme environments in order to develop a sound technical and scientific basis to conduct astrobiological research on other solar system bodies.
This amendment delays the proposal due date for Appendix C.20, ASTEP. The change in peer review contract and concomitant move of computer hardware means that the NSPIRES web interface through which proposals and NOIs are submitted will not be available from Thursday July 15 through Sunday July 18. Thus, the proposal due date for ASTEP has been changed to Friday, July 23, 2010. Table 2 and Table 3 of the Summary of Solicitation for this NRA have been updated to reflect this change.
Questions concerning ASTEP may be addressed to Mary Voytek, (202) 358-1577.
