UV Science and Technology Interest Group

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.
