Topics

GSFC scientists become LAT Affiliates

Presence at meetings, recent and future

Contacts with other facilities, MW contacts

Additional project-related activities

successful MOR, 15-16 March

orbit inclination: working to use excess lift capacity to reduce inclination to ~25.4°. Stay tuned.

work with PAO; pre-/launch activities, milestones & products, press plan update.

Mission papers

Planning for First GLAST Symposium (see later talk)

Additional Community Connections (from previous meeting)

gssc scientists lat affiliates
GSSC Scientists LAT Affiliates

David Band, Robin Corbet, Dave Davis, Masa Hirayama, Rita Sambruna, Tom Stephens

Jerry Bonnell and Jim Chiang were already LAT Affiliated Scientists

Jay Norris was already a LAT Full Member prior to formation of GSSC

presence at meetings
Presence at Meetings

Presence at many small topical conferences. Rita compiled a list. Also, see Pat Nolan ‘s page: http://www-glast.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/conferences?all

Most recent: ten excellent contributions at Dallas APS in April

Upcoming big meetings

Great Observatories workshop in Pasadena 22-24 May (discussions with organizer Neill Reid; no formal GLAST contribution)

Working with invited speaker at “Quantum to Cosmos” 22-24 May in D.C. to include GLAST

San Servolo GRB 5-9 June (Tuesday evening GLAST workshop.) Request discussion topic today: targeting specific meetings for workshops to reach out to MW observers. Suggestions?

Requested Special Session at SFO HEAD October

Suggestions for January AAS welcome (Deadline 15 May)

First GLAST Symposium 5-8 February 2007 (see later topic at 16:45)

Please let me know of other important opportunities that appear uncovered!

some contacts with other facilities
Some Contacts with Other Facilities

Earlier discussions with NRAO (Ulvestad et al) reported previously

Discussions with ROTSE (Akerlof)

Mission and LAT discussion with Chandra

telecon on 21 Feb with Harvey Tananbaum

discussed Chandra proposal cycle, how we might make GLAST/Chandra joint proposal peer review efficient and coherent; what works and what does not work for Chandra proposals, typically; how ToOs work.

anything that could be done adequately by another (more flexible, less-subscribed) facility (e.g., Swift) should not be done with Chandra.

agreed a set of GLAST talks at CXC valuable ~now-through winter 2006.

LAT MW discussions with several facilities (see topic 16:00), including

TeV observatories

Discussions with OVRO 40m (Readhead)

mission papers
Mission Papers

Strong need for good GLAST references

Discussed with Instrument PIs a proposal for a coherent trio of GLAST papers:

LAT, GBM, Mission

Discussed with ApJ editor: positively received.

Drafting outlines to review with editors. Swift is a helpful model as a starting point.

Plan is to have papers ready to submit this fall.

additional community connections
Additional Community Connections
  • Now is a good time to re-evaluate our efforts to reach beyond the gamma-ray community.
    • Speakers bureau. Standard set of mission slides.
    • Gamma-ray school?
      • When?
      • Purposes: target audience(s) and which missions/facilities included beyond GLAST?
      • Good models?
    • What else?
