ROSES 2012 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 16: Final text for Appendix D.7, The Kepler Guest Observer Program.

Description: Amendment 16 presents the Final text for Appendix D.7, The Kepler Guest Observer Program. Notices of Intent are requested by December 7, 2012, and proposals are due by January 18, 2012.

The Kepler Guest Observer (GO) Program element solicits proposals for the acquisition and analysis of new scientific data from the Kepler mission, which is the tenth mission launched under NASA's Discovery Program. Cycle 5 will be the first full cycle of Guest observations in Kepler's extended mission phase, and with that transition the scope of the program has now been expanded to include proposals for exoplanet and exoplanet-related scientific observations. Specifically, under Cycle 5, the Kepler GO program is open to:
 
i)  proposals addressing any area of astrophysics outside of the exoplanet Key Project study (see Section 1.3.1);
ii)  proposals for short cadence observations of known exoplanet candidates that are not currently being observed in short cadence; and
iii) proposals for long cadence observations of new targets for the identification of planets transits.
 
Notices of Intent are requested by December 7, 2012, and proposals are due by January 18, 2012.

A separate electronic version of the target table must be submitted to the Kepler GO Office by the proposal deadline. Details appear in the text of Appendix D.7

ROSES 2012 will be updated on or about October 1 to reflect these changes.
