Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets will not be solicited in ROSES-13

When the ROSES-2013 omnibus solicitation was released, the Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets (ASTEP) program included a notice at the top that said in part "NASA may solicit research proposals under this program..." and the due dates were listed as "TBD." We regret to inform proposers that ASTEP will not be solicited in ROSES-13 due to a lack of funding.

This Amendment removes Appendix C.20 from ROSES-13. It will appear in Tables two and three as "Not solicited this year."

On or about June 26, 2013, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2013" (NNH13ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2013

Questions concerning Appendix C.20, Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets may be directed to Mary Voytek, Planetary Science Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC 20546-0001. Telephone: (202) 358-1577; E-mail: mary.voytek-1@nasa.gov.
