A Michigan Town Hall on Decadal Strategy of Solar and Space Physics

You are invited to a Town Hall meeting to brainstorm and possibly coordinate inputs from Michigan to the next decadal report.

DATE: Thursday, October 14, 2010
TIME: 1:30 - 4:30 PM
PLACE: 2424 Space Research Building

DIRECTIONS: Download directions [PDF]

As further background, The Space Studies Board of the National Research Council, is organizing a broadly-based assessment of the scientific priorities of the U.S. solar and space physics research enterprise for the period 2013-2022. Survey details may be found at:

It is important to recognize that the request for concept papers is
 explicitly not just a request for proposals for future NASA missions.
 For all those who are submitting a paper, mission-related or otherwise,
 we ask that you follow the instructions that are provided in the PDF
 file that will open by clicking on "Read the Request for Information for
 the Solar and Space Physics Decadal Survey" on the SSB site (see link above). Further, to ensure thorough and equal consideration, it is especially important that proposers of major mission concepts meet the initial deadline for review by our science panels. Therefore, we strongly encourage submissions of concept papers by November 15,2010.
