Astro 2010 Decadal Survey Alan Boss (Carnegie Institution) Tom Greene (NASA Ames) Pathways to Habitable Planets Conference Barcelona, Spain September 17, 2009
Past Decadal Surveys: Astronomy and Astrophysics in the New Millennium, C. McKee and J. Taylor, Co-chairs (2001) The Decade of Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics, J. Bahcall – Chair (1991) Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 1980s, G. Field – Chair (1982) Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 1970s, J. Greenstein – Chair (1972) Ground-Based Astronomy: A Ten-Year Program, A. Whitford – Chair (1964)
Astro2010 Panel on Electromagnetic Observations from Space (EOS) Summary As one of the four Astro2010 Program Prioritization Panels (PPP) the EOS panel is charged with recommending a prioritized, balanced, and integrated research program which includes a rank ordering of research activities and a balanced technology development program for space-based facilities that observe in the electromagnetic spectrum. Notes:1. Recommendations based on analysis of many submitted science, mission, and technology white papers and science panel reports. 2. Space-based particle and gravity (LISA) activities considered by a different PPP. 3. Recommendations from all panels will be integrated / modified by Programs subcommittee and Decadal Survey committee. 4. Reports go to NASA, NSF, and DOD for their future planning efforts.
