NASA K2 Guest Observer – Cycle 2 Update

This program solicits proposals for the acquisition and analysis of new data from the K2 mission:

K2 repurposes the space-borne hardware and ground-based operations of the Kepler mission for a pointed survey of predetermined locations along the ecliptic plane. The single, visible-wavelength instrument onboard K2 provides high-precision photometry capability, with short
cadence and long cadence modes (1 minute and 30 minute exposures).

Only proposers who submit a Step-1 proposal will be eligible to submit a Step-2 (full) proposal. Potential proposers are strongly encouraged to carefully read the information about the two-step proposal process provided in Section 4 of D.13.

Step-1 proposals to D.13 K2 Guest Observer – Cycle 2 will not take a separately uploaded PDF “proposal” document. Instead, text in the “Proposal Summary” box on the cover pages will be the description of the Step-1 proposal.

The due dates remain unchanged.
Step-1 proposals are due January 16, 2015
Step-2 proposals are due February 27, 2015
