SALMON AO Amendment 2: Delay of Due Date for Small Complete Missions in Astrobiology and Fundamental Space Biology

With this amendment, the NASA Announcement of Opportunity NNH08ZDA009O, "Stand Alone Missions of Opportunity Notice (SALMON)," is amended to delay the proposal due date for proposals submitted in response to Program Element Appendix H3: Small Complete Missions of Opportunity in Astrobiology and Fundamental Space Biology.

The proposal due date for Small Complete Missions of Opportunity in Astrobiology and Fundamental Space Biology proposals is delayed until early in 2009.

The full proposal information package (PIP) for Small Complete Missions of Opportunity in Astrobiology and Fundamental Space Biology was not made available in sufficient time to allow proposers to develop proposals before the original proposal due date. The MicroNano Spacecraft and Payloads Office at NASA Ames Research Center will develop a more comprehensive PIP and the revised package will be completed by early 2009. At the time the revised PIP is posted to the SALMON Acquisition Homepage at http://salmon.larc.nasa.gov/, a new proposal due date will be announced. Proposals will be due no earlier than 8 weeks following release of the revised PIP.

On or about November 24, 2008, Amendment No. 2 to the NASA Announcement of Opportunity "Stand Alone Missions of Opportunity Notice (SALMON)" (NNH08ZDA009O) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select "Solicitations" then "Open Solicitations" then "NNH08ZDA009O").
