Announcement of Opportunity (AO-2)
This is the second (and final) in-flight Herschel Announcement of Opportunity (AO-2) for observing proposals. It follows the pre-flight AO for Key Programmes (KPGT and KPOT) which took place in 2007-08, and the first in-flight AO (GT1 and OT1) which took place in 2010. There will be no further AOs for Herschel observing time.
Like the previous AOs it has two parts. The first part, GT2, is open only for Herschel Guaranteed Time holders, while the second part, OT2, is open to the world wide scientific community.
