The European Space Agency (ESA) has issued a Call for Proposals for the First Planning Cycle of the New Cosmic Vision 2015-2025 (http://sci.esa.int/cv2015). It is anticipated that some U.S. investigators may wish to participate in the flight programs that will result from the advanced studies being solicited by the Call, and NASA is interested in the possibility of supporting U.S. investigator participation in future flight projects.

Per the Call, U.S. investigators collaborating on Assessment Phase proposals to be submitted to ESA will be required to provide ESA with a supporting letter from NASA. Proposers desiring such a letter must submit a brief description no later than May 15th to the Science Mission Directorate at NASA HQ. Please contact Paul Hertz for more information: Dr. Paul Hertz, Chief Scientist, Science Mission Directorate, NASA, Washington, DC 20546; Telephone: (202) 358-0986; E-mail: paul.hertz@nasa.gov
