The Space Telescope Science Institute will host a Workshop entitled: Astrophysics Enabled By the Return to the Moon, November 28-30, 2006. The Workshop is organized in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, University of Colorado, AURA, and NASA.

The general philosophy of the Workshop is to explore critically whether the expected return to the moon can be used for progress towards answering some of the most important questions in astrophysics today. Because of the exploratory nature of the Workshop, broad areas of astrophysics will be examined. These will include: Extrasolar Planets; The Formation and Evolution of Stars and Galaxies; Large Scale Structure; The High-Redshift Universe; Dark Matter and Dark Energy.
