The Planetary Science Research Program supports investigations to help ascertain the content, origin, and evolution of the Solar System and the potential for life elsewhere, consistent with the strategy for Planetary Science Exploration embodied in the 2020 NASA Science Plan. The Planetary Science Research portfolio contains specific program elements aimed at addressing these strategic objectives.
This amendment on or about June 4, 2020, delays the Step-2 proposal due dates for a number of programs in planetary science as follows:
- The due dates for Step-2 proposals to both C.24 Yearly Opportunities for Research in Planetary Defense (YORPD) and C.6 Solar System Observations (SSO) is now June 17, 2020.
- The due date for Step-2 proposals to C.20 Development and Advancement of Lunar Instrumentation Program (DALI) is now July 10, 2020.
