Yesterday (Monday 22 October), National Science Foundation suffered a
power blackout for most of the day, and with it went NSF’s Fastlane system
used by researchers and their colleagues to submit their funding proposals. By
12:45 pm ET today (23 October), Fastlane had returned.
A message on NSF’s home page says proposals due to NSF on Monday, Tuesday, or
Wednesday of this week (22-24 October), are extended to Friday 26 October at
5:00 pm, submitter’s local time.
