Author Affiliations +
LUVOIR is one of the four large missions being studied for the Astro 2020 decadal review. The LUVOIR observatory is a large, ~9-15m diameter, serviceable concept. The observatory must be highly stable, low 10’s of picometers/10s of minutes and has cold, less than 100K detectors, and warm mirrors, 270K. This paper discusses the evolution of the thermal architecture and discusses the trades evaluated to arrive at the current concept. The next steps in the development will be discussed.
