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)

This is a series of presentations and a discussion on using astronauts and robots to service, upgrade, and 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 the spectra of Earth-like planets in large numbers to search for evidence of life. The technical and engineering merits and challenges of in-space servicing and assembling large-aperture telescopes and starshades will be discussed, including issues of launching these systems in segments for in-space assembly, and replacement of outdated instruments. Also discussed will be possible space infrastructure that may facilitate on-orbit assembly. Precursors and demonstration activities will be noted, as will the earliest candidate missions that can utilize this capability. The panel discussion will be initiated by the following featured presentations:

* A vision for human space flight and scientific exploration and the search for life in the cosmos
* Lessons from four servicing missions of the Hubble Space Telescope
* Demonstration and precursor activities
* Candidate initial assembly mission: starshade
* Roundtable discussion on joint opportunities: science and human space flight
* Serviceability and assembly of future large space telescopes (full information below)
