Revealing the Invisible Universe

Stellar Lifecycles Science Working Group

The Stellar Lifecycles SWG is pleased to invite applications from the community for active participation and membership. The SWG will be responsible for identifying outstanding science questions related to the evolution of stars, X-ray binaries, supernovae, and SN remnants, developing a compelling science case, and aiding the STDT with producing a mission concept that best addresses these questions. Please register here by identifying in one or two paragraphs the topics you would like to contribute to, your expertise in these areas, and what tasks you are willing to undertake in support of the study.
