Subject: SBAG Roadmap chapters
Author: Yan Fernandez <>
Date: 18-Jul-2011 11:31:25
Hello everyone -- Here's the latest from Mark, below. The next deadline to worry about is August 15. I'm attaching the current version of our chapter. Here're the primary things we need right now: 1. A matrix in Section 3. The matrix would compare how various small-body characterizations fit in to the various NASA objectives. 2. Text in some of the subsections of Section 5. 3. Sprinkling in some references to the decadal survey. 4. Adding the reference list at the end. 5. "1 page executive summary" (though I can probably whip this up after the rest is done). If someone could take charge of 1 or more of these items, that'd be great. Let me know soon what you're willing to contribute. Thanks --Yan Begin forwarded message: > From: "Mark V.
