ROSES-18 Amendment 12: New Opportunity in C.24 Apollo Next Generation Sample Analysis (ANGSA)

The goal of the Apollo Next Generation Sample Analysis (ANGSA) Program is to maximize the science derived from samples returned by the Apollo Program in preparation for future lunar missions anticipated in the 2020s and beyond. To achieve this, ANGSA solicits research on specially curated materials from the Apollo 15, 16, and 17 sample collections, which were returned to Earth in 1971-72.

The ANGSA program will consider only proposals that focus on the analysis of the following list of Apollo samples, although proposers are welcome to include other lunar samples in their studies to help understand the specially curated samples.

Notices of Intent to propose are requested by June 22, 2018, and proposals are due by August 21, 2018.

On or about May 14, 2018, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2018” (NNH18ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
