Re: ESA and CAS planning for a joint scientific mission

UKSA claimed this mission to be S2 - i.e. within the Cosmic Vision context for ESA. Anyone know if it's actually being paid from CV, or whether - as is far more likely - it's budgeted as a Mission of Opportunity?

Yes, SMILE is the S2 mission in the Cosmic Vision 2015-2025 Programme.

Now, SMILE is a "Collaborative mission with China"
