By Keith Cowing
November 16, 2006

With this amendment to ROSES-2006, NASA establishes a new program element in Appendix E.5 entitled “History of the Scientific Exploration of Earth and Space.” The primary objective of the History of the Scientific Exploration of Earth and Space (HSEES) program element is to engage, inform, and inspire diverse public audiences by sharing historical knowledge about NASA’s scientific exploration of the Earth and space and by communicating NASA’s unique contributions to the advancement of Earth and space science during the past 50 years. An essential component of communicating to the public is accurate, complete, well-written histories about the scientific exploration of space.

The HSEES program element solicits proposals to produce accurate, complete, interpretive, and readable histories of major activities in NASA’s scientific exploration of Earth and space as supported by the Science Mission Directorate and its predecessor organizations since the establishment of NASA. This program element is broadly defined to include cooperative international activities in which these NASA organizations played a significant role. Notices of Intent to propose are due December 15, 2006, and proposals are due February 15, 2007. On or about October 26, 2006, Amendment No. 19 to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2006” (NNH06ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at (select “Solicitations” then “Open Solicitations” then “NNH06ZDA001N”).

Questions may be addressed to Dr. T. Jens Feeley, Management and Policy Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC 20546-0001; Telephone: (202) 358-1714; Email: [email protected].
