Paper Abstract

In this review, we will first briefly discuss the imaging performance of the missions, with an emphasis on the Darwin mission. We will then discuss how these space interferometers will contribute in a very significant way to our understanding of the formation and evolution of planets, stars, galaxies and supermassive black-holes located at the centers of most or possibly even all galaxies.
