Abstract
The Cosmic Origins Spectrograph is a new instrument for the Hubble Space Telescope that will be installed in 2002. It is designed for high throughput, medium resolution spectroscopy of point sources, allowing the efficient observation of numerous faint extragalactic and galactic UV sources. The primary science objectives of the mission are the study of the origins of large scale structure in the universe, the formation, and evolution of galaxies, and the origin of stellar and planetary systems and the cold interstellar medium.
