Subject: COVID-19 Impact on the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) Cycle 1 GO Proposal Deadline
The novel coronavirus COVID19 is causing significant impact and disruption on the worldwide community. The situation is evolving rapidly with no obvious conclusion in sight.
Given those circumstances, STScI, NASA, ESA, and CSA have decided to delay the proposal deadline for JWST Cycle 1 GO proposals to no earlier than May 27th 2020. We are continuing to monitor the situation, and will provide an update on the schedule on April 15th 2020.
These are stressful and challenging times. Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the current situation. As always, please contact the jwst helpdesk if you have any questions.
