The Physics of the Cosmos Program Analysis Group (PhysPAG) is organizing a three-day meeting between Aug. 14 and 16. As part of this gathering there will be meetings of the various Science Analysis Groups (SAGs). The Inflation Probe SAG (IPSAG) is planning a one-day meeting on Aug. 15. Conclusions of this meeting will be relayed to the PhysPAG and to NASA officials on the morning of Aug. 16. All community members are invited for the entire PhysPAG meeting.
The Inflation Probe Technology Roadmap Committee completed a roadmap that should guide NASA about the technologies necessary for a future Inflation Probe mission. This roadmap will inform NASA in its decisions about funding of various technology development programs over the next few years.
The roadmap has been submitted to the PCOS office in the end of October 2011. We thank the members of the IP Technology Roadmap Committee for their work on the road map:
