ROSES-17 Amendment 6: D.4 ATP computing restrictions relaxed

ROSES-17 Amendment 6: This amendment relaxes the restriction on requests for acquiring computing resources for Program Element D.4 Astrophysics Theory Program.

The Astrophysics Theory Program (ATP) supports efforts to develop the basic theory for NASA’s space astrophysics programs. Proposals submitted for this program must be both directly relevant to space astrophysics goals by facilitating the interpretation of data from space astrophysics missions or by leading to predictions that can be tested with space astrophysics observations and consist predominantly of theoretical astrophysics studies or the development of theoretical astrophysics models.

This amendment removes a restriction on requests for acquiring computing resources. In addition to applying to the High-End Computing (HEC) Program for access to NASA supercomputers, proposers are now permitted to request support to purchase computing equipment or computing time from non-NASA sources.

The due dates remain unchanged: Notices of intent are requested by June 1, 2017, and proposals are due July 27, 2017.

On or about April 25, 2017, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2017" (NNH17ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
