PUNCH First Science Team Meeting

Members of the PUNCH science team meeting virtually on June 3-5, 2020.

The first PUNCH Science Team meeting was held virtually June 3-5, 2020. 44 team members and colleagues attended, sharing information about the mission, instruments, science goals, and planned data products. We also learned about STEAM, our student enhancement option, and plans for PUNCH Outreach. The Outreach presentation included a member of the Hopi tribe who read aloud his letter of support for our envisioned plan. There are many Science Team members who are experienced and interested in contributing to Outreach and Communications for PUNCH.

The meeting was enriched by a broad array of short presentations from team members and breakout discussions. The team's goal between now and PUNCH launch is to work together to make sure we have analysis tools developed and tested so we can hit the ground running and serve science data and data products to the community as the PUNCH observations roll in.
