Astronomy and Astrophysics Decadal Survey (Astro2020) – New Report and Webinar

Date: Thursday, November 4, 2021

Location: US,

Every 10 years, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine partners with the astronomy community to survey the field of astronomy and astrophysics, and map a comprehensive research strategy and vision for the next decade of transformative space- and ground-based science at the frontiers of the field. It also serves as a guide for scientists, policymakers, and federal agencies invested in the astronomical sciences.

The new report – the seventh decadal in the series – identifies key scientific priorities for the decade of 2022-2032 and makes recommendations for the field, including for flagship and medium-scale missions and projects that are needed to meet scientific goals. 

Members of the committee that wrote the report will present their findings and recommendations during a webinar on Thursday, Nov. 4, from 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EDT. Register to attend.

Advance copies of Pathways to Discovery in Astronomy and Astrophysics for the 2020s will be available to reporters only beginning at 11 a.m. EDT Wednesday, Nov. 3. The report is embargoed and not for public release before 11 a.m. EDT Thursday, Nov. 4.

Reporters may obtain a copy of the report by contacting the Office of News and Public Information; tel. 202-334-2138 or e-mail
