Gamma Ray Science Interest Group
The goal of the Gamma Ray Science Interest Group (GammaSIG) is to provide quantitative metrics and assessments to NASA in regard to current and future needs of hard X-ray and gamma-ray astrophysics community. Specifically, the GammaSIG will:
- Act as a focal point and forum for the gamma ray community.
- In 2015 produce a community roadmap, in part to support planning for the next decadal survey. The roadmap will summarize the science goals for the next-generation of gamma-ray telescopes and include a range of possible mission concepts for addressing those goals.
- Maintain a list of technology needs, derived in part from the roadmap, for future hard X-ray and gamma-ray missions.
- Produce suggestions to help support the specific needs of this unique community: organizational, scientific, funding.
The GammaSIG is open to all members of the community. If you are interested in contributing to the work of the GammaSIG, please subscribe using the link below. You can also contact Henric Krawczynski, chair of the GammaSIG, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
