The MSL Participating Scientist Program is intended to enhance the scientific return from the MSL mission (http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/) by augmenting the existing MSL science team to include new investigations that broaden and/or complement the funded Principal Investigator (PI)-led investigations, thus maximizing the contribution of MSL to the future exploration and scientific understanding of Mars. The second and equally important goal of this opportunity is to increase the number of scientists supporting daily mission operations.
Notices of Intent are due January 21, 2011, and proposals are due March 22, 2011.
