NASA KECK TELESCOPE CALL FOR PROPOSALS

NASA is soliciting proposals using the Keck Telescopes for the 2010A observing semester (Feb 2010 - July 2010). NASA intends the use of the Keck telescopes to be highly strategic in support of on-going missions and/or high priority, long term science goals. Thus, starting with the 2009A semester, NASA Headquarters opened up the NASA Keck call to a wider range of disciplines. These disciplines include studies of exoplanets and our own solar system, as well as galactic and extragalactic studies in support of NASA's Cosmic Origins science goals and missions. In addition, an identified Key Science project for 2010A is in support of the CoRoT mission.

This 2010A call includes proposals for CoRoT Key Science as well as proposals in the following discipline areas: 1) Investigations in support of Exoplanet Exploration science goals and missions; 2) Investigations in support of Cosmic Origins science goals and missions; 3) Investigations of our own solar system; and 4) Direct mission support.

The proposal process is being handled by the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute (NExScI) at Caltech and all proposals are due on 16 September 2009 at 4pm PDT. Please see the website at http://nexsci.caltech.edu/missions/KeckSolicitation/index.shtml for further information. Questions not answered on these pages can be directed to KeckCFP at ipac.caltech.edu.
