ROSES-08 Amendment 26: Several ROSES due dates extended

This amendment delays the proposal due dates for three program element of ROSES-2008: Earth Science for Decision Making: Gulf of Mexico Region (Appendix A.28), Outer Planets Research (Appendix C.7), and Astrobiology: Exobiology and Evolutionary Biology (Appendix C.17).

Earth Science for Decision Making: Gulf of Mexico Region (Appendix A.28) and Astrobiology: Exobiology and Evolutionary Biology (Appendix C.17) are being delayed in recognition of the severe difficulties that our colleagues in the Gulf of Mexico region are experiencing due to recent hurricanes. This change will allow additional proposal preparation time for proposers who may have been impacted by Hurricane Gustav and other hurricanes and tropical storms so that all proposers may prepare high-quality, responsive proposals. Outer Planets Research (Appendix C.7) is being delayed by two weeks to accommodate a delay in announcing selection decisions for some proposals submitted last year and to avoid conflicts with the 40th meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences.

The new due date for Appendix A.28, Earth Science for Decision Making: Gulf of Mexico Region, is October 30.

The new due date for Appendix C.7, Outer Planets Research, is November 14, 2008.

The new due date for Appendix C.17, Astrobiology: Exobiology and Evolutionary Biology, is September 26, 2008.

On or about September 12, 2008, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2008" (NNH08ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select "Solicitations" then "Open Solicitations" then "NNH08ZDA001N").
