NASA selects four astrophysics missions for further study

Four astrophysics mission proposals to study stars, galaxies and some of the most violent explosions in the universe have been selected for further study by NASA.

The selected missions are competing for funding under NASA’s Explorers program and were announced by the agency on Thursday, August 18. The Explorers program focuses on small to medium-sized missions that can have significant scientific impact but can also be built and launched in a much shorter time frame than large, expensive missions.
