Prepare a “wish list

19:30: Dinner in Garching (Gasthof Neuwirt -in the garden)

Wednesday 10th July:


11:00: Available facilities

  • orbital platforms (HST? Swift? etc.) ?
11:30 - 13:00: Required observations (part 2)
  • Matching wish list to possible facilities 
  • Timeline of observations
  • How to balance load across telescopes
  • Focussed periods of observation vs long monitoring campaigns

14:00 - 15:00: Next steps:

  • Teams to prepare proposals / observe / work on data sets.
  • Strategy for continued coordination:
  • coordinated proposals?
  • data sharing?
  • observation reporting?
  • communication with Rosetta team and wider community?
  • further meetings (when/where)?
