candidate missions for the M5 opportunity
in ESA's Science Programme
A virtual meeting to be held via Webex on Thursday 29 April 2021, from 09:30-13:00 CEST

19 April: The programme has been updated to include a short break between the EnVision and THESEUS presentations
In April 2018, ESA selected three candidate missions for study for the 5th Medium-class mission (M5) launch opportunity of the Cosmic Vision Programme. Of these, two missions, EnVision and THESEUS, are completing the study phase and are now in competition to be selected as the next mission in the ESA Science Programme. As part of the mission selection, both teams have been invited to make a public presentation, describing their respective missions and the expected science return, and thereafter answering questions from the audience. Details of each mission can be found in the Assessment Study Reports (see below).
The public presentation will be held virtually on 29 April, 2021. People wishing to attend are requested to register using the link below.
