Science gaps worksheet posted on NSPIRES page for ROSES-23 D.16 Astrophysics Decadal Survey Precursor Science

The ROSES-23 Astrophysics Decadal Survey Precursor Science (ADSPS, D.16) program supports research in areas related to the recommendations from the National Academy of Science and Engineering report, "Pathways to Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 2020s" ( for 1) a large Infrared/Optical/Ultraviolet space mission to search for biosignatures from nearby exoplanets and to perform transformative astrophysics investigations, 2) a large Far Infrared mission, and 3) a large X-ray mission.

The science gaps worksheet resulting from the Precursor Science Workshops and the community surveys has been posted under other documents on the ROSES-23 NSPIRES page for D.16 Astrophysics Decadal Survey Precursor Science and Section 1.2 of the text has been updated accordingly. New text is in bold and deleted text is struck through. The due dates remain unchanged: Mandatory NOIs are due March 29, 2024, and proposals are due April 26, 2024.
