The Scientific Justification

A concise but detailed scientific justification of the proposed research must be provided on separate sheets. In particular it should be discussed how the proposed ROSAT observations are expected to advance the previously obtained knowledge. It must be demonstrated that the science issues proposed for investigation cannot be solved from the all-sky survey data and therefore require pointed ROSAT observations; the feasibility of the proposed observations must the carefully ascertained. Also the relevant scientific background should be discussed and previous work on the subject commented upon whenever appropriate. A total of four pages (out of which up to three may be text in single-spaced, font size 10-point pitch or greater) including figures and tables are the maximum size of the scientific justification.
