ROSES-16 Amendment 36: This amendment creates a placeholder for program element C.26 Instruments For Gondola For High-Altitude Planetary Science

NASA’s Planetary Science Division has begun development of the stratospheric balloon platform Gondola for High-Altitude Planetary Science (GHAPS) intended for use by the broad science community. NASA intends to release a new program element for GHAPS science instruments through ROSES in early November 2016. The report of the science instrument definition team (SIDT), convened to define the scope of potential science investigations and derive the science requirements and potential instrument concepts for such a platform that could address Planetary Science Decadal Survey questions, is available on the NSPIRES web page for this program element. A summary of that report will also appear in Poster #123.31 at the joint 48th meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences and 11th European Planetary Science Congress in Pasadena, California, October 16-21, 2016. The issuance of this community announcement does not obligate NASA to release a program element.

On or about October 7, 2016, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2016" (NNH16ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at  and will appear on the RSS feed at: .
