Amendment 67: D.13 Astrophysics Pioneers Revised Text

This program element solicits proposals for "Pioneers", Astrophysics space and sub-orbital science investigations that are greater in cost, scope and capability than what is possible within Astrophysics Research and Analysis (D.3 of ROSES-2022) but are smaller in cost than what is possible within the Astrophysics Explorers Mission of Opportunity program.

ROSES-2022 Amendment 67 releases significantly revised text for D.13 Pioneers. The numerous changes are not shown via strike-through or bold. Major changes include: 1) This program element is not participating in the Inclusion Plan Pilot Program but 2) Proposals will be evaluated using the dual-anonymous peer review process. See Section 2 and the associated "Guidelines for Anonymous Proposals" document on the NSPIRES page for this program element. 3) Letters of support from the International Space Station office, the Balloon Program Office, or Commercial Lunar Payloads Services are no longer required as part of the proposal; these instead are now required with the submission of the Concept Study Report. Mandatory NOI and proposal due dates have not changed: Mandatory Notices of Intent are due by January 27, 2023, and proposals are due March 16, 2023.

On or about November 21, 2022, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2022" (NNH22ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at
