ROSES-06 Amendment 5: Adjustments in ROSES-2006 to align with the NASA budget, NASA HQ

“Specifically the proposed FY07 budget includes a 15% reduction for R&A in most disciplines and a 50% reduction in astrobiology. These budgets are sufficiently different from the planning budgets that were used to develop ROSES-2006 that adjustments are required in several ROSES-2006 program elements to be consistent with NASA’s FY06 operating budget and the President’s requested NASA FY07 budget.”
