PRIMA Far-IR Probe Science Workshop

The PRIMA Far-IR Probe Science Virtual Workshop will be hosted by IPAC on March 22, 2022.

Motivation and goal of the workshop: The 2020 Decadal survey report, “Pathways to Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 2020s”, has recommended a new line of probe missions for the coming decade, that would provide powerful capabilities not possible at the Explorer scale. The report also identified a far-IR or X-ray probe as highest priority to accomplishing the survey’s scientific goals.

The goal of this community workshop is to discuss and refine the science that could be accomplished with PRIMA ((PRobe far-Infrared Mission for Astrophysics) within the cost and schedule envelopes outlined by the survey.
