Physics of the Cosmos Mission Studies

  • LISA/L3 Gravitational Wave Mission Study
  • Athena/L2 X-ray Telescope Mission Study
  • Lynx/X-ray Surveyor Mission Study

    Lynx is a concept for a scientifically compelling X-ray observatory that could revolutionize our understanding of the physics of astronomical systems and enable frontier science from first accretion light in the Universe to solar system objects. Lynx should provide a great leap forward in capability including high angular resolution and throughput for orders of magnitude gains in sensitivity, a large field of view, and high resolution spectroscopy.

    Lynx is one of four Decadal Survey Mission Concept Studies initiated in January 2016. The study will extend over three years and executed by the Marshall Space Flight Center under the leadership of a Science and Technology Definition Team (STDT) drawn from the community.

    More information may be found on the Lynx website.
