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 as part of NASA’s Explorers Program and were announced by the agency on Thursday, Aug. 18. The Explorers Program focuses on small to medium-sized missions that can make a big science impact but also can be built and launched in a much shorter timeframe than large, expensive missions.
