Artist's conception of the Universe,
  • Astrophysical observations in the X-ray, optical, infrared, microwave, and radio spectral regimes to understand
    • The Cosmic Microwave Background
    • The formation, structure and evolution of galaxies
    • The formation of stars and the planet-forming environment
  • Spacecraft observations of in situ magnetic fields and plasmas
  • Development of new techniques for observations of and interpretation of gravitational wave spectra
  • Development of new instrumentation for astronomical observations and space physics
  • Laboratory measurements of cross sections in highly-charged ions; and phenomena in electron-molecule and atom-surface collisions and
  • Theoretical modeling of star and planet formation, protostellar disks, dusty debris disks and the development of new techniques for direct observation of extrasolar planets.
