From Cosmic Birth to Living Earths: The Future of UVOIR Space Astronomy
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 176

Description:
For the first time in history, humans have reached the point where it is possible to construct a revolutionary space-based observatory that has the capability to find dozens of Earth-like worlds, and possibly some with signs of life. This same telescope, designed as a long-lived facility, would also produce transformational scientific advances in every area of astronomy and astrophysics from black hole physics to galaxy formation, from star and planet formation to the origins of the Solar System.
