Scientific Opportunities for New Instrumentation
Sunday, June 06, 2010 - 4:00pm PDT to Tuesday, June 08, 2010 - 7:00pm PDT
Asilomar Conference Grounds, CA
The Workshop will provide a venue for interaction and collaboration between theorists, observers and instrument developers to:
- Review the most important scientific questions addressable through IR and sub-millimeter observations, particularly as they pertain to SOFIA in a 3-7 year range.
- Identify the most urgently needed new instruments required for those observations.
- Highlight technology advancements that can lead to powerful new instrumentation in the near term.
- Discuss unique, synergetic observing programs between SOFIA and other existing and near-term observatory facilities from both space and the ground.
