Charge to the PAGs on Astrophysics Probes

About the Survey

Paul Hertz (NASA Astrophysics Division Director) has charged the three Astrophysics Program Analysis Groups (PAGs) with reviewing a small set of candidate large mission concepts, and suggesting addition, subtraction, and other useful summary. The results of this review will be reported at the NASA Advisory Council Subcommittee meeting in October in the form of a report. This page provides information on the charge and the ExoPAG's plans for responding to this charge and creating this report. The ExoPAG will respond to this charge in the context of its Science Interest Group #1 activities, as described in the following charter: SIG #1: Toward a Near-Term Exoplanet Community Plan. The ExoPAG is soliciting input from the community through three primary methods:

The COPAG is also soliciting white papers and are happy to receive white papers from the ExoPAG community:
