Kevin Marvel, Executive Officer
The AAS Council has passed the following resolution on the Beyond Einstein Program Assessment Committee Report with input and advice from the Committee on Astronomy and Public Policy.
AAS Statement on the Beyond Einstein Program Assessment Committee
The AAS commends NASA and DOE for working together and for using a broad range of community experts to obtain advice on the difficult task of choosing the first mission in the Beyond Einstein program. The attention of the National Academy's Beyond Einstein Program Assessment Committee (BEPAC) to cost, schedule and readiness in the evaluation of the missions and the inclusion of project management experts on the committee are innovations that will prove valuable for the next Astronomy & Astrophysics Decadal Survey.
