Paper Abstract

The SPIDR mission is designed to test predictions of cosmological models of the structure of the universe. In addition, SPIDR will provide new information about hot gas in a variety of Galactic environments. These diagnostics will bo obtained through spectral imaging of selected astrophysical fields in the 100 - 160 nm band. In this paper we will provide an overview of the SPIDR mission and its observational approach.
