NASA Missions To Study Universe’s Secrets
NASA SELECTS 4 CONCEPTS FOR MISSIONS TO STUDY UNIVERSE’S SECRETS
(CNN) – NASA wants to know the secrets of the universe and it’s planning several missions to learn them.
The space agency is putting together a new program called Pioneers.
The program will plan four small-scale astrophysics missions to take a deep dive into what makes our universe tick.
Scientists are looking to explore phenomena like galaxy evolution, exoplanets and neutron star mergers.
These are some big scientific ideas, but NASA says it plans to keep the missions to learn more about them at a low cost.
According to the agency, spending for a pioneer mission will be capped at $20 million.
