Paper Abstract

The need for space astrophysical observatories to support advances in basic knowledge of the universe is discussed. Observatories will require permanent presence in space for construction and assembly of large-aperture instruments and for servicing. Results are presented from a study of technology development for construction of a large-aperture instrument in space.
