Paper Abstract

The conclusions, recommendations, and target design parameters for a 100-m class optical space interferometer that has been recommended by a study group of the ESA for launching around the year 2005 are summarized. The desirability of an interferometer on the moon, covering the entire wavelength range from UV to sub-mm, with a space interferometer as a possible intermediate step, is considered.
