The Small Bodies Assessment Group (SBAG) is NASA's community-based forum designed to provide science input for planning and prioritizing the exploration of small bodies throughout the Solar System for the next several decades. It also provides input on how small bodies can be utilized in support of human space activities. The SBAG is chartered by NASA's Planetary Science Division and reports its findings at meetings of the Planetary Science Subcommittee of the NASA Advisory Council's Science Committee. It is open to all interested scientists. The SBAG regularly evaluates the goals, objectives, investigations, and required measurements for the exploration of small bodies on the basis of the widest possible community outreach.
The NASA Small Bodies Assessment Group will be held at the University Arizona, Tucson from January 11-13, 2017. Attendees will convene in the auditorium of the Michael Drake Building Room 125, located at 1415 N. 6th Avenue on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 per the agenda provided by Lindley Johnson, NASA Program Manager and NASA Small Bodies Chairman, Dr. Tim Swindle.
