Scientific Advisory Committee

Made up of community experts on young low- and high-mass stars, the ULLYSES Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) was assembled to provide scientific advice to the CIT about the scientific aspects of the implementation process, including the selection of appropriate targets, filter selection, distribution of exposure times, and the relative priorities of different analysis tools.

UV Legacy Working Group Members

The UV Legacy Working Group was established to identify the most effective strategy for achieving high scientific impact and return for an investment of 600 to 1000 HST orbits of ultraviolet observations related to star formation and the associated stellar physics. The working group, with input from the astronomical community, defined the overarching science case and goals for the program, and outlined a suite of observations necessary to accomplish them. The recommendations of the working group were summarized in a report published in December 2018. Full report (PDF link)
