Juno Participating Scientist Program (ROSES 2017)

Funding Agency:
National Aeronautics and Space Administration

The objective of the Juno Participating Scientist Program (Juno PSP) is to enhance the scientific return during the science phase of the Juno mission by expanding participation in the mission through new investigations that broaden and/or complement existing mission investigations. The Principal Investigator (PI) of a selected proposal, and that person alone, will be added to the Juno Science Team as a Participating Scientist and will be given all of the rights and responsibilities of Juno Co-Is, as per the Juno Rules of the Road. In the case that a proposal names a Science PI, that individual (and not the named Principal Investigator) will be added to the Juno Science Team as a Participating Scientist; for these proposals, "Principal Investigator" means "Science PI" and the proposal Principal Investigator will be considered a Co-Investigator.

The Juno Participating Scientist Program is jointly solicited by the NASA Planetary Science and Heliophysics Divisions, but will be administered primarily by the Planetary Science Division. As such, this program element is governed by information contained in Appendix C.1, Planetary Science Research Overview, except where superseded by this document.

Juno's primary science goal is to inform the understanding of the formation, evolution and structure of Jupiter, which is directly related to the conditions in the early solar system which led to the formation of our planetary system.
