Committee on Science Opportunities Enabled by the Gateway: A Workshop

Statement of Task


The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will appoint an ad hoc planning committee to organize a workshop that will focus on facilitating an expert dialog on issues related to the science that can be supported by NASA's Gateway (formerly the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway). In part, the workshop will serve as an opportunity for NASA to present the Gateway design and plans to the wider science community, and describe the opportunities and constraints that the platform provides for conducting science internally and externally in cis-lunar space, as well as for supporting lunar surface science. Based on a consideration of the details of the design options for the crew-tended orbital platform, the output of such activities as NASA’s 2018 “Deep Space Gateway Concept Science Workshop,” and lessons-learned from the experience of establishing a science program on ISS, the workshop will address relevant questions identified by the planning committee. In designing the workshop, the planning committee will consult with NASA on the status of the mission design activities and prior inputs to the science capability planning process.
This workshop is part of a series of biannual workshops organized under the auspices of the Space Studies Board on a topic of mutual interest to NASA and the space science community. A workshop proceedings will document the workshop, including summaries of individual presentations and ensuing discussions. This proceedings document will not present consensus conclusions or recommendations.
