NA5 Which Astrophysics at Dome C?


Leader: Hans Zinnecker (Potsdam)

Identifies key astrophysical observational programmes to be carried out in Antarctica that complement those already in progress or planned in conventional ground based observatories or with space missions. A science steering committee will prepare and publish a rationale of the science programmes, instrumental recommendations to reach the scientific objectives and a timeline for instrumental development at Dome C in the context of space and other ground based programmes.
