CHANDRA ELECTRONIC ANNOUNCEMENT NUMBER 28 One announcement: 1. Joint Chandra/Hubble/Spitzer Programs ---------------------------------------------------------------- Item 1. Joint Chandra/Hubble/Spitzer Programs ============================================= Dear Colleagues, With three of NASA's Great Observatories operating, there is a very special window of opportunity for observing programs requiring more than one of these telescopes. Chandra, Hubble and Spitzer offer joint time allocation to observe on two or three of the Great Observatories with a single proposal, evaluated by a single Time Allocation Committee (TAC). In addition each of the Great Observatories also offers joint time programs with major ground-based optical/IR and radio observatories. With the finite cryogenic lifetime of Spitzer and the aging of the other Great Observatories, this window of opportunity is very short (perhaps 3 more years for the Spitzer component). All members of the science community are encouraged to capitalize on this unique opportunity for projects which require observations from multiple telescopes and fit within the time allocated for joint projects. The joint time allocation categories were designed to ensure that the best projects that require observing time on more than one of NASA's Great Observatories (or with one space observatory and a ground-based observatory) can be selected in a timely manner and receive the required time without going through the process of submitting proposals to multiple TACs. The details of the program can be found in the Call for Proposals released by each of the Chandra, Hubble and Spitzer Observatories.
