Amendment 76: D.16 Astrophysics Decadal Survey Precursor Science Final Text and Due Dates.

The emphasis of D.16 Astrophysics Decadal Survey Precursor Science (ADSPS) is on science investigations that will reduce future Great Observatory mission risk and inform mission designs and trades when those activities begin. All three Great Observatory concepts identified in the Astro2020 Decadal Survey Report are in the scope of this activity. The precursor science investigations solicited by this program element may include, but are not limited to, theoretical and computational studies, laboratory astrophysics investigations, archival research, and observational investigations.

ROSES-2022 Amendment 76 releases final text and due dates for this program element, which was TBD. Mandatory NOIs are due January 20, 2023, and Proposals are due March 24, 2023.

Proposals will be evaluated via dual-anonymous peer review, see Section 2.7, and This program element is participating in the Inclusion Plan Pilot Program, see Section 2.8.

On or about December 14, 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 and will appear on SARA's ROSES blog at:
