Dear Colleague,                                       18-August-2020

NASA is pleased to call to the attention of members of the
U.S. scientific community the release by the European Space Agency
(ESA) of the Announcement of Opportunity (AO), "XMM-Newton Call for
Observing Proposals", soliciting Guest Observing proposals for the
20th cycle (AO-20) observing program for ESA's X-ray Multi-Mirror
Mission (XMM-Newton).  The subject Announcement solicits proposals for
observations to be performed during a 12-month period commencing in
May 2021.  Due to the nature of the NASA-ESA bilateral agreement, only
proposals from scientists affiliated with U.S.  institutions are
solicited by this Letter; others are advised to contact ESA
directly. U.S.  scientists may propose either as Principal
Investigators or as Co-Investigators on proposals with either U.S. or
non-U.S. (foreign PI proposals) PIs.  The AO may be accessed directly
from ESA at the following address:


The XMM-Newton Guest Observer Facility (GOF) at the Goddard Space
Flight Center (GSFC) is the support center for XMM-Newton activities
in the U.S.  Information of interest to U.S. observers, as well as
general project information, can be found at the following address:


A detailed description of the mission, including instrument
capabilities and additional information pertaining to the proposal
preparation and submission procedures, is also available via links
from the XMM-Newton home page at that address.  (General questions
concerning XMM-Newton and participation by U.S. investigators should
be addressed to xmmhelp@bigbang.gsfc.nasa.gov.)  ESA will be
responsible for conducting a peer review of all submitted proposals,
including those from U.S. investigators, and determining the
associated time allocation.  Current plans call for ESA to notify
proposers and NASA of the results of the peer review in mid-December

Based on the outcome of the 2019 Senior Review of Operating Missions,
NASA currently expects to allocate approximately $2.5 M in Fiscal Year
2022 for a Guest Observer (GO) program to support the analysis,
interpretation and publication of data obtained by U.S. proposers who
are granted Open Time observing on XMM-Newton under AO-20.  This level
is comparable to the amount available for the support of U.S. GOs for
AO-18 and AO-19.  In light of existing budgetary constraints, it is
anticipated that only U.S. PIs with Category "A" or "B" proposals will
be invited to apply for support from the U.S.  XMM-Newton GO program
for AO-20. Pending the results of the ESA selection of observing
proposals submitted to AO-20, NASA will issue an update to this letter
to inform U.S. proposers of any changes to the above.

participation in the XMM-Newton mission, please contact:
