FUSE Cycle 5 NRA Released

FUSE Cycle 5 NRA & Call for Proposals Released

        The Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) project is pleased to
announce the release of the call for proposals for the fifth year of general 
observations ("Cycle 5").  The NASA Research Announcement (NRA-03-OSS-01-FUSE) 
and Cycle 5 proposal instructions were released on July 3, 2003. Notices of 
Intent may be submitted by August 8.  Proposals are due to NASA by 
September 19, 2003.

	The FUSE satellite performs high-resolution spectroscopy of the far 
ultraviolet (905-1187 ) spectral region with high sensitivity.  Staring with 
Cycle 4, all the observing time of the FUSE mission is available to the general 
astronomical community through the NRA process.  Approximately 6000 kilo 
seconds of on-target exposure time will be allocated to GI programs in Cycle 5.

	This year the FUSE Guest Investigator program is part of NASA's 
Research Opportunities in Space Science (ROSS) NRA.  FUSE proposal preparation 
and submission procedures are very similar to that in Cycle 4, however the 
on-line documentation for the NRA and proposal instructions has a different 
organization.  Please consult the web sites listed below.

	Starting in Cycle 5 a new proposal category, "Legacy Programs", are 
available.  This proposal category is intended to provide the opportunity for 
large, coherent projects of general and lasting importance to a wide 
astrophysical audience.  As in Cycle 4, the "standard" and "survey" proposal 
categories are also available.  

	The FUSE GI program is open to qualified scientists from all categories 
of organizations, both US and foreign, including educational institutions,
NASA centers, commercial and not-for-profit organizations, and other
government agencies.
