Cosmic Origins Program Analysis Group (COPAG)

SAG #10: Great Observatories

The COPAG, together with the PhysPAG and ExoPAG, is forming a Great Observatories Science Analysis Group (SAG) to study the future of multi-wavelength Astronomy from space. The Great Observatories opened up the electromagnetic spectrum from space from gamma rays to the far-infrared and, with subsequent missions, have provided sustained access to the astronomical community for more than two decades. The goals of this SAG are to (1) identify the gaps in wavelength coverage and scientific capabilities anticipated over the next 10–20 years as NASA's current space observatories age or are decommissioned, and (2) analyze how these gaps will affect the ability of the community to continue to make progress in a rapidly changing scientific landscape.

The SAG will provide a report to NASA by April 2019 in anticipation of the 2020 Decadal Review. We are now soliciting members of the astronomy community who are interested in participating in this SAG. If interested, please fill out the form by 10 August 2018. We encourage applicants at all career stages.
