Amendment 68: Second Exoplanets Research opportunity in ROSES-2018

Amendment 68 releases the second Exoplanets Research opportunity in ROSES-2018 as E.5 2XRP. Step-1 proposals are due by March 29, 2019 and Step-2 Proposals are due by May 29, 2019.

The Exoplanets Research Program (XRP) element solicits basic research proposals to conduct scientific investigations focused on extrasolar planets (exoplanets). Broad objectives of this program include, but are not limited to: the detection and characterization of other planetary systems; characterization of individual exoplanets, through exploration of their composition, dynamics, energetics, chemical behavior, etc.; and the origins of extrasolar planets.

The release of ROSES-2019 will be later than normal this year as a result of the partial government shutdown. In order to maintain the May Step-2 proposal due date for this program and the standard 90-day period between release and Step-2 proposal due date, this amendment releases the second Exoplanets Research opportunity in ROSES-2018 through this program element. Step-1 proposals are due by March 29, 2019 and Step-2 Proposals are due by May 29, 2019. Read the text carefully, changes have been made to the text since the prior version from Spring 2018.

Questions regarding this program element may be directed to martin.still@nasa.gov and stephen.a.rinehart@nasa.gov.
