Science with the Habitable Worlds Observatory and Beyond, 10-14 July 2023

The Astro2020 “Pathways to Discovery” report envisions an ambitious, multi-decadal fleet of cooperating New Great Observatories, beginning with the Habitable Worlds Observatory (HWO). HWO aims to search for planets like the Earth around Sun-like stars, and to revolutionize other areas of astrophysics with its deep imaging and highly multiplexed spectroscopy. NASA is now embarking on the scientific and technical maturation program that will build a new paradigm for flagship mission development.

The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, MD will host an HWO conference from 10-14 July 2023. The conference will bring together scientists, technologists, and other stakeholders to discuss the most compelling science drivers for HWO, identify new science areas, and to work toward a feasible development path. We will also discuss how the recommended X-ray and far-IR flagships complement these science aims and how their concepts might be advanced in the coming decade while HWO is under active development. The conference will include invited talks, contributed talks, and posters on all areas of science and technology.

The conference will support both in-person and virtual participation. The deadline for abstract submission is 2 June 2023, and the registration deadline is 9 June 2023.

Further details, registration, and an opportunity for proposing contributed talks will be forthcoming on the conference webpage.

NASA's Chandra, Webb Combine for Arresting Views

Four composite images deliver dazzling views from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory and James Webb Space Telescope of two galaxies, a nebula, and a star cluster. These cosmic wonders and details are made available by mapping the data to colors that humans can perceive. Read more.
