2019 Astrophysics Explorers MO Program Library

This library includes documents available electronically via the Internet; many documents are also available as a paper copy from their original source. Note that not all referenced documents are actually hosted on the SOMA server. These documents may be downloaded from their host location via installed hyperlinks. It is incumbent upon the proposer to ensure that the documents used in proposal preparation are of the date and/or revision as listed in this Program Library.
