NASA is evaluating several low-cost mission concepts to study star and galaxy evolution.

NASA selects four astrophysics missions for further research

NASA has selected four proposals for astrophysics missions studying stars, galaxies and some of the most violent explosions for further study.

Selected missions are competing for funding as part of NASA’s Explorers program and were announced by the agency on Thursday, Aug. 18. The Explorers Program focuses on small to medium-sized missions that can have a significant scientific impact but are also buildable and constructable. Compared to large, expensive missions, launch times are much shorter.
