The Future of Airborne Infrared/Submm Astronomy: Prospects and Opportunities

Date: 
Monday, July 26, 2021 - 6:00am PDT to Wednesday, July 28, 2021 - 10:00am PDT
Location: 
Online
Event Type: 
Workshop

This online workshop aims to define the major science topics in Infrared/Submm astronomy for the next decade from a European perspective. Solar system to distant galaxies, continuum and spectroscopy observations from airborne platforms will be discussed.

This workshop is the first of two with the Infrared- and Submm-community in mind. This first one aims to gauge observational and theoretical interests for the next ten years, while no Infrared/Submm space observatories are planned, but SOFIA is in regular operation and balloon-borne experiments/missions executed flights already or are in development. Key science goals from this first workshop will then feed into a second one, which is planned in October 2021, where instrument builders are invited to present their ideas of new, innovative instrument solutions to address the science questions identified.
