Proposal for using future Deep Space Gateway to deploy a cubesat UV Telescope

The AEGORA team presented on 5th December 2017 a proposal for using the Deep Space Gateway for UV exploration, during the Deep Space Gateway Workshop held at ESTEC (European Space Agency,  Noordwijk, Netherlands) . This proposal is based on the deployment of a UV telescope integrated inside a 8U cubesat.  The project aims to determine the distribution of neutral gas in the Earth exosphere and to observe the surface of the moon in UV range, sharing many synergies with other ongoing UV projects, such as WSO-UV mission or studies for UV facilities such as LUVOIR/POLLUX or CETUS.
