MAKING THE MOST OF THE GREAT OBSERVATORIES
22-24 May 2006
The workshop was held May 22-24, 2006 in Pasadena, California at the Hilton Hotel with ~90 participants. The goal of the workshop was to focus the astronomical community's attention on the scientific priorities for NASA's Great Observatories over the next few years, emphasizing both joint/multi-mission scientific programs, and programs that lay foundations for the future. Materials handed out at the workshop and copies of the review talks, panel presentations, and discussion session notes are linked in below. A science summary review and an article about the Workshop written for the STSCI newsletter are also provided.
