Welcome...

...to Annapolis for the MESSENGER Science Team meeting. We have a "standard meeting" planned, but with a historic venue, and hopefully very "non-standard" results, as MESSENGER continues to to execute "NASA's mission to Mercury, a planetary enigma in our inner solar system".

While our meetings tend to be very busy for all of us, we hope you will be able to find some time to take in a little of Annapolis, the capital of Maryland since 1694, capital of the United States for several months following the signing of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, and home to the United States Naval Academy since its founding in 1845. In addition to the "tourist shops", Annapolis boasts many excellent restaurants, including the Treaty of Paris restaurant, which will be preparing the team dinner. We hope you will be attending that gathering as well as the meetings themselves!

Feel free to contact us with any questions. We look forward to seeing you in November.
