5 September 2017 Recent developments in next-generation UV-visible space telescope planning and design
Author Affiliations +
We discuss the recent input and development of next generation UV-visible space-based observatories, the science they have been designed to achieve, and the technological challenges and potential solutions that have been identified. This paper will cover community-driven needs and strategic goals and hopefully give some insight into what the next UVvisible space telescopes will look like and what they will be able to deliver. The discussion will focus on, but not be exclusive to, the ongoing studies for both LUVOIR and HabEx.
