Over the last 13 years, NASA and its astrophysics and planetary science communities have greatly benefited from access to the Keck Observatory, the world’s largest optical/infrared telescopes. Studies using NASA Keck time have ranged from observations of the closest solar system bodies to discoveries of many of the known extrasolar planets. Observations at Keck have supported spaceflight missions to Mercury and the technology development of the James Webb Space Telescope. Access to Keck for the NASA community is an extremely cost effective method for NASA to meet its strategic goals and we encourage NASA to continue its long-term partnership with the Keck Observatory.
