OST Face-to-Face #6

Post date: Sep 15, 2017 12:42:00 PM

I gave a talk on the Rise of Metals science case the 6th OST Face-to-face meeting at the Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, MD on September 14-15, 2017. You can view the talk here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1zEgLkC7HS1RSRn0LKua7n38PF4XeFxwRuBPIAfm6FBk/edit?usp=sharing

I also put some slides together to think about the minimum size of OST Concept 2: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/13Nnd0J2S9xqmQMKQNz02XtW38RcQZsv90gjGYLvA5Is/edit?usp=sharing

It depends a lot on how much science we want to do. If we assume same science outcomes as for OST-9m, but we focus on fewer science cases, then the minimum is 6m, if we assume the instruments do not loose any beams on sky.
