DESC: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration ( NASA )
Office of Space Science is releasing a DRAFT Announcement of
Opportunity (AO) for community review and comment for science
investigations with the Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST).
Selections of proposals through the final AO, once released,
are intended to provide one science instrument capable of achieving
NGST imaging goals in the near infrared (a collaborative effort
with the Canadian Space Agency), one Science Lead (U.S.) for
a Mid Infrared Instrument (MIRI) which will be built jointly
with the European Space Agency, four other team members (U.S.)
for the Mid Infrared Science Team (MST), one NGST Facility
Scientist (U.S.), one NGST Telescope Scientist (U.S.), and
four Interdisciplinary Scientists. The primary science goal
of the NGST mission is to advance the understanding of the
formation of the first stars and galaxies.

Participation is
open to all categories of organizations, foreign and domestic,
including industry, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations,
NASA centers, and other Government agencies. NASA welcomes
critical review and comment of this DRAFT AO, which will be
available from July 31, 2001, through August 13, 2001, via
