The Astro2010 Decadal Survey held its Astro2010 March meeting in Cambridge, MA, on March 20, 2009. It was hosted by Smithsonian, Harvard, and MIT, and held at the American Academy for the Arts and Sciences. The agenda for the meeting can be downloaded from here [.pdf].
|The Astro 2010 Decadal Review has drawn enthusiastic participation from IXO supporters. We list here the 15 white papers most directly relevant to IXO science. Note that there are many more white papers submitted on high-energy astrophysics topics related to the IXO mission. These white papers represent contributions from hundreds of scientists from the United States, Europe, and Japan.|
