Session 20. New Missions

Workshop, Tuesday, November 7, 2000, 7:30-9:15pm, Pago Pago Ballroom

This Workshop will compete with the excitement of election eve. (surely results will then be known, Hawaii time!) to present the even more stimulating prospects for new missions that will help define high energy astrophysics over the coming decade. The missions discussed here are ones in development or that have either been recommended in the Decadal Review, the NASA Strategic Plan (and its input reports), or have been discussed at large within the community. Time did not permit all mission concepts to be presented, and several are included in the Missions and Instruments session (47) or in the Workshop Poster session. GLAST is discussed in its own workshop (Thurs. eve.).
