The MAQRO Consortium was founded in 2013. It was redefined in 2021 in the course of preparing a research-campaign white paper for NASA’s BPS 2023 Decadal Survey. While we are preparing the proposal for ESA’s 2021 call for a medium-size mission, we will actively aim to expand the community supporting MAQRO, and we will welcome scientists and engineers to join us.
