Roman Community Forum

The Roman Space Telescope mission partners are planning to start the Roman Community Forum. This will be a monthly virtual meeting that will provide updates on Roman mission status and plans, and an opportunity for the science community to engage with the Roman Project and Science Centers.

To keep up to date with the Roman Project sign up to the mailing list by sending an e-mail to Please include a subject. It's technically not needed to join, but having it helps prevent an issue where a subscription submission could be quietly deleted.

Next Community Forum: Wednesday August 2, 2023 at 4pm

This Forum will serve as a welcome to the newly selected science teams and provide a general overview for engaging with the Roman project.
