Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Friday, January 12, 2018

ROSES-17 Amendment 60: The Proposal Due Date for Program Element C.3 Solar System Workings has been delayed to February 22, 2018.
The Solar System Workings (SSW) program element supports research into atmospheric, climatological, dynamical, geologic, geophysical, and geochemical processes occurring on planetary bodies, satellites, and other minor bodies (including rings) in the Solar System. This call seeks to address the physical and chemical processes that affect the surfaces, interiors, atmospheres, exospheres, and magnetospheres of planetary bodies. A wide range of investigations will be covered, including theoretical studies, analytical and numerical modeling, sample-based studies of extraterrestrial materials, field work, laboratory studies, and data synthesis relevant to the physical and chemical processes affecting planetary systems.
In response to community input, as well as professional hardships caused by the recent extreme weather, the proposal due date for Program element C.2 Solar System Workings has been delayed to February 22, 2018.
On or about January 12, 2018, 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:
Questions concerning this program element may be directed to Jennifer Heldmann, or any other member of the SSW caucus, via email to
