 URANUS SYSTEM ENCOUNTER WITH NEW HORIZONS II WORKSHOP
 
A Uranus System Encounter with New Horizons II Workshop has been
 scheduled for the morning of Monday 21 June 2004 immediately 
before the Forum on Outer Planetary Exploration at the Westin Pasadena 
(191 North Los Robles in Pasadena, CA), and provide ideas to maximize 
the science return from a close Uranus system fly-by using a New 
Horizons instruments payload aboard a possible second New Horizons 
mission.
 
The New Horizons spacecraft carries a medium angle color camera, a 
narrow angle panchromatic camera, a near IR imaging spectrometer, a UV 
imaging spectrometer, several field and particles experiments, a
dust counter, and a radio science experiment. Details of these 
instruments can be found at
