The Outer Planets Research (OPR) program supports diverse scientific investigations that contribute to the understanding of the outer Solar System, including the giant planets, their satellites, and smaller solid bodies including comets, asteroids, and Kuiper Belt objects. The program includes both data analysis from NASA missions and fundamental research.
The due date for proposals to Appendix C.7, the Outer Planets Research Program, has been delayed to November 2, 2012, so as not to overlap with the 44th Annual Meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society. Notices of intent to propose are still requested by August 24, 2012.
On or about August 10, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012" (NNH12ZDA001N) 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-2012
Tables 2 and 3 of the Summary of Solicitation for this NRA will be updated to reflect this change.
