logoAASThe next leap to LUVOIR astronomy is being prepared at the time the JWST is in its ramp-up for integration, tests and launch in 2018. This post-JWST generation will likely be a 10-12m deployable segmented telescope working in UV, VIS and NIR wavelengths. The building of such a giant space observatory gathers many technological challenges that require a solid R&D pathway to increase the TRL of technical solutions, and propose innovative ones to overcome the current barriers.

The splinter session at the AAS 227th meeting will be on Tuesday 5th morning. Click on this link to see my talks page.
