From Event: SPIE Optical Engineering + Applications, 2017
In preparation for the 2020 Decadal Survey, NASA has undertaken studies in four general mission areas to assess the potential system configurations and the resulting science. The HabEx and LUVOIR mission concept teams are assessing observatories between 4-meters and 14-meters in size. The MUVOIR mission idea evaluates a modest sized, 6.5-meter mission that leverages the JWST investment in the national infrastructure and how that might be used to reduce the lead time and cost for a post-WFIRST Exoplanet/UV and Visible band astrophysics mission.
