Big things have small beginnings

Lynx is an observatory for all. Not just all astronomers - all people. NASA's Great Observatories like Hubble and Chandra embody this grand tradition. Yes, they deliver great science, but they also inspire the public to pursue a greater understanding of the world (and Universe!) around them. Even mission concepts, then, should welcome and inspire interest from and within the global public. 

It is in this spirit that we are excited and proud to launch the new platform upon which we will share the vision, story, and journey of Lynx with the world

What you see here is merely a beginning. Content will be ever changing, our mission blog will expand with frequent posts from members of the Lynx Team, and we will keep the community up-to-date with news before, during, and after the meeting of the 2020 Decadal Survey. 


Today marks the start of the XXXth IAU General Assembly in Vienna, and we are celebrating with the launch of our new website. The Lynx Twitter and Facebook accounts will be actively involved in #IAU2018, and we have far bigger plans to come for the 233rd AAS Meeting in Seattle (January 6-10, 2019). 

We may be launching in the 2030s, but our journey begins today. Join us.
