by Staff Writers
Paris (ESA) Aug 22, 2017


illustration only

The European Space Agency (ESA) invites members of the science community in Europe to propose ideas for research that could be performed on the Deep Space Gateway, a crewed spaceship in lunar vicinity.

The Deep Space Gateway is a strategic platform that is being prepared by the International Space Station partner agencies to be humanity's next step beyond Low-Earth Orbit and out into the Solar System. Operations would take place during the 2020's in the vicinity of the Moon.

With the present Call, ESA is consulting the science community to identify the research opportunities offered by this crewed platform, and to specify which capabilities are needed to enable this research.

Research areas may fall into the following broad categories: Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Solar System Science, Earth Sciences, and Astronomy and Astrophysics, as well as technology and other areas of a more applied nature.

A document (pdf, 499 KB) with further details of this call and containing important information about the Deep Space Gateway and its expected resources and capabilities for research can be found here.

The submissions received through the call will be presented and discussed at a workshop to be held at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), The Netherlands, on 5-6 December. Details of this workshop can be found here.

A submission template, detailing the requirements for a submission, is available for download here

Submissions, which should be no more than two pages in length, can be submitted through the workshop registration page.

The collected ideas will be reviewed by a Science Advisory team (see list of members below) and will provide the basis for the programme of the workshop. Authors who wish to make a submission but do not wish to present their idea at the workshop are asked to indicate this when submitting their idea.
