Amendment 56: Due Date Delay for C.24 Gravity/Radio Science Team Co-Investigators for the Europa Clipper Mission

This Amendment delays the due date for proposals for Co-Investigators to ROSES-2019: C.24 Gravity/Radio Science Team for the Europa Clipper Mission.

The objectives of the Europa Clipper Gravity/Radio Science Team (Clipper G/RS) Program are to 1) add new members to the Europa Clipper science team with expertise in gravity, radio science, and/or similar investigations to the Europa Clipper science team; and 2) expand science community participation on the existing Europa Clipper science team. The program will select a Lead Scientist and Co-Investigators (Co-Is) to populate the Clipper G/RS team.

Three types of proposals are permitted under this program element: 1) proposals to serve as the Lead Scientist for the G/RS team that describe the offeror’s leadership abilities; 2) proposals to serve as a Co-I on the G/RS team that describe a science investigation; and 3) proposals to serve as a Co-I on the G/RS team focused on leading the data archiving effort for the G/RS team.

The due date for proposals to serve as the Lead Scientist have passed and a mandatory Notice of Intent (NOI) was required for all proposers. This Amendment delays the due date only for proposals for Co-Investigators. For those who have already submitted their Mandatory NOIs, proposals are due January 24, 2020. The planning start date for Co-Investigators is now April 1, 2020.
