    MoU between ASI and RosCosmos after the Phase B study, but from interagency high level discussion (March 2006) we are going towards a MoU.

    The Italian participation

  • INAFThe Italian Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica was very hostile toward WSO/UV after the ESA/AWG report on 13 Jan 2006 (ASTRO(2006)3).The Italian NWWG produced a document1 and gave a presentation2 to the INAF Science Council to defend the project (science case, recent developments, programmatics).We succeeded to obtain the recommendation of WSO/UV in the INAF Long Term Plan.
