    Title

    Space Agency Strategies and Plans

    Description

    The first session includes invited talks by international space-agency division directors about their long-term views, priorities, and plans to implement developments and missions for the five fields (exoplanets, space astronomy, space physics, fundamental physics, and outer solar system planetary science). The mission scope ranges from flagship-class, large-class, medium-class, and small-class to smallsat platforms. The program scope includes status updates on current programs, near-term investment priorities, and long-range directions, including the relationship to community and guiding research panels.
