Please support the final extension of the Cluster mission (reminder)

 Annonce transmise par Patrick Canu (LPP)


We are writing as the Cluster Principal Investigators to inform you that a positive decision by ESA to support a final extension of the Cluster mission during 2023-2025 is in doubt. We would like to ask for your help in our efforts to persuade ESA to support a final extension. Apologies, if you have seen this message more than once.


If you would like to show your support, please simply visit the following link, and add your name/institute/nation at the end of the google document that you find there, at your earliest convenience.


The document that you will find there consists of a letter that the Cluster PIs have drafted to send to ESA's Director of Science and the members of its Science Programme Committee (SPC). We aim to send the completed letter in mid-January, ahead of a key SPC Workshop in early February (which itself precedes the SPC meeting in March at which the extension decision is expected to be formalised).


Please feel free to share this email with colleagues that may be interested; our mailing list is not comprehensive!

Thank you in advance, if you choose to indicate your support.


best wishes
