Complementarity of NGST, ALMA, and far IR Space Observatories
Author and Affiliation:
Mather, John C.(NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD United States)
Fisher, Richard R. [Technical Monitor]
Abstract: The Next Generation Space Telescope (NGST) and the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) will both start operations long before a new far IR observatory in space can be launched. What will be unknown even after they are operational, and what will a far IR space observatory be able to add? I will compare the telescope design concepts and capabilities and the advertised scientific programs for the projects and attempt to forecast the research topics that will be at the forefront in 2010.
