Dear Colleague Letter to Solicit Proposals for HISAKI Guest Investigator Program (HISAKI-GI)

Dear Colleagues,

NASA is soliciting proposals for a Hisaki Guest Investigator Program in collaboration with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

Hisaki is a Japanese ultraviolet astronomy spacecraft operated by JAXA. This JAXA mission was launched in September 14, 2013, to study Jupiterโ€™s aurora and Io torus in the Extreme UltraViolet (EUV) spectra. The HISAKI spacecraft has an elliptical orbital apogee of 1157km and with a perigee of 947km; the main science instrument is the Extreme UltraViolet (EUV) spectroscope (EXCEED). Hisaki has a secondary science objective to observe Mars and Venus in the extreme ultraviolet.

More information on HISAKI is available at: http://www.isas.jaxa.jp/home/sprint-a/index_en.html
