Technology Roadmap for the Lynx X-Ray Mission
Tuesday 8 August 2017
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Session Moderator: Jessica A. Gaskin, NASA Marshall Space Flight Ctr. (USA)

The NASA Astrophysics Division has commissioned four studies to be presented to the next Decadal Survey of Astronomy and Astrophysics as potential flagship missions for the next decade. One of these potential missions is the Lynx X-ray Mission. This will be an open forum/discussion regarding technologies for the optics and science instruments for the Lynx Mission. We will conduct a collaborative work space to discuss these technologies within the context of a technology Roadmap, with open discussion.
