UV Science and Technology Interest Group (UV STIG)

The UV Science and Technology Interest Group will work with the Cosmic Origins Program Analysis Group to collect community input and define long-term Cosmic Origins science objectives of the UV astronomy community that can be addressed by space-based observations. A primary goal for the STIG will be to identify a compelling suite of science cases to provide programmatic focal points that would justify the community to support investment in next-generation UV missions. UV STIG is open to any interested members of the community and we welcome all input.

The Quorum for Ultraviolet Exploration of Science and Technology (QUEST)

NASA's Cosmic Origins Program Ultraviolet Science and Technology Interest Group is developing a series of seminars devoted to assessing the readiness of various UV and Visible technologies to achieve the aspirational goals of Cosmic Origins science as we move into the post-release era of the Astro2020 Decadal Survey.

The Quorum for Ultraviolet Exploration of Science and Technology (QUEST) will convene virtually and approximately monthly for the purpose of developing prioritization metrics for the UV/Vis components of Cosmic Origins science goals as guided by the decadal debrief expected in 2021.
