The Space Review: Debating the future of exoplanet missions concepts and community

"Even if we don't get to fly this mission, we've done the community a service by showing that there does exist at least one probe mission concept in this $1 billion cost cap level," Stapelfeldt said.
"We have come up with what Paul Hertz asked us to do, which is to come up with a probe mission at the cost cap of $1 billion," said Karl Stapelfeldt of NASA Goddard in a presentation about Exo-C at the ExoPAG meeting. An independent cost estimate of an earlier iteration of the mission concept, performed by the Aerospace Corporation in September, came out to be $1.1 billion, he said. An updated design, submitted to Aerospace for costing in December, should be less, he said. Exo-C would make use of the Kepler spacecraft bus, equipped with a 1.4-meter telescope and a coronagraph to allow direct imaging of exoplanets. The use of the Kepler-heritage technology, plus a launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, allows the mission to fit into the $1 billion cost cap, he said. "Even if we don't get to fly this mission, we've done the community a service by showing that there does exist at least one probe mission concept in this $1 billion cost cap level," Stapelfeldt said.

We have no way of knowing that now," said Karl Stapelfeldt, chief scientist of NASA's Exoplanet Exploration Program.
"We don't yet have a way to detect it, but NASA is working on the technology to make it possible," Stapelfeldt said.

Another group, led by Karl Stapelfeldt of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, is studying a method known as a coronagraph, in which the occulting disk is inside the telescope.
