ROSES-13 Amendment 3: Changes to ROSES-13 Appendix B.6 Heliophysics LWS Science

Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Monday, February 25, 2013

The goal of NASA's Living With a Star (LWS) Program is to develop the scientific understanding needed for the United States to effectively address those aspects of Heliophysics science that may affect life and society. LWS Science solicits proposals leading to a physics-based understanding of the integral system linking the Sun to the Solar System, including the impact on the heliosphere, planetary magnetospheres, and ionospheres. The program's objectives can be achieved by data analysis, theory, and modeling, and the development of tools and methods (e.g., software for data handling). LWS Science is a crosscutting initiative

The Step-1 due date for this program has been delayed from 03/01/2013 until 03/15/2013. Also, a FAQ has been posted under "Other Documents" on the NSPIRES web page for Appendix B.6

On or about February 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 and will appear on the RSS feed at:

Questions concerning Appendix B.6 Heliophysics LWS Science, may be addressed to either Madhulika Guhathakurta or Robert Leamon at
