Ensuring the enduring viability of the Space Science Enterprise (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Pursuing ground breaking science in a cost and funding constrained environment presents new challenges to the development of future space astrophysics missions. Within the conventional cost models for large observatories, executing a flagship “mission after next” appears to be unstainable. To achieve our nation’s space astrophysics ambitions requires new paradigms in program design, system design, development and manufacture. Implementation of this new paradigm requires that the space astrophysics community adopt new answers to a new set of questions. This paper continues our discussion the origins of these new questions and the steps to their answers.
