The Second Starshade Science and Industry Partnership (SIP) Forum will be held on February 6-7, 2020 in Boulder, Colorado.

The Exoplanet Exploration Program of the NASA Astrophysics Division charters the Starshade Science and Industry Partnership (SIP). The purpose of the Starshade SIP is to maximize the technology readiness level of starshades to enable potential future exoplanet science missions. The SIP’s Science and Technology Working Group (TSWG), industry partners, and the face-to- face Forums bring science and technology communities together to enable new approaches and techniques and recognize new science mission drivers. Presentations of the 1st Starshade SIP Forum are posted at, along with the SIP terms of reference and the released Starshade Technology Development Plan.
