ESA PR 33-2004. The ESA/NASA Cassini-Huygens mission, launched in October 1997, is currently heading for Titan, Saturn's largest moon. The ESA Huygens probe will be the first ever to land on the surface of a moon in the outer Solar System, and the NASA Cassini orbiter will continue to explore Saturn and its rings.

This is to inform you of the first round of the ESA Astro-E2 Guest Investigator Programme (EAO-1). Scientists belonging to institutions within ESA Member States may apply for observing time on the Japanese/US X-ray astronomy mission Astro-E2 through this AO. The aim of the programme is to maximize the scientific return from the mission through co-operation between European and Japanese scientists. Assuming a launch in 2005 January/February, the observing time covered by EAO-1 will start in around 2005 September and last for 12 months. Approximately 6% of the total observing time will be allocated to successful proposals from the ESA Member States.
