Panel Discussion: Astronauts and Astronomers to Enable the Most Ambitious Space Observatories
Monday 7 August 2017
3:40 PM - 6:00 PM

Moderator:
Harley Thronson, NASA Goddard Space Flight Ctr. (USA)

Panelists:
Matthew A. Greenhouse, NASA Goddard Space Flight Ctr. (USA)
John M. Grunsfeld, NASA Johnson Space Ctr. (USA)
Rudranarayan Mukherjee, Jet Propulsion Lab. (USA)
Bradley M. Peterson, Space Telescope Science Institute (USA)
Nicholas Siegler, Jet Propulsion Lab. (USA)
Hsiao I. Smith, NASA Goddard Space Flight Ctr. (USA)

This is a series of presentations and a discussion on using astronauts and robots to service, upgrade, and eventually assemble future space observatories that will achieve major breakthroughs in our understanding of the cosmos. These missions will be able to study in detail the structure of the first star-forming complexes in the earliest galaxies, the central engines in distant galaxies, and be sufficiently capable of searching very large numbers of extrasolar planets for evidence of life. The technical and engineering merits and challenges of in-space servicing and assembling large-aperture telescopes will be discussed, including issues of launching the telescope/instrument in parts, assembling it in space, and replacing outdated instruments. Also discussed will be possible future space infrastructure that may make more attractive on-orbit assembly. Precursors and demonstration activities will be noted, as well as the earliest candidate missions for in-space upgrade and servicing. The panel discussion will be initiated by the following featured presentations given by the Panelists:

* A vision for human space flight and scientific exploration and the search for life in the cosmos (Grunsfeld)
* Future space servicing: The GSFC Satellite Servicing Projects Division (Smith)
* Serviceability of future large space telescopes (Peterson)
* Robotic capabilities to enable large structures (Mukherjee)
* Candidate initial assembly mission: Starshade (Siegler/Greenhouse)
