(Habitable Exoplanet Imaging Mission)
(proposed space mission to directly image exoplanets)

HabEx (for Habitable Exoplanet Imaging Mission) is a concept for a space telescope to observe Extra-Solar Planets with Direct Imaging, proposed to NASA for its Flagship Program, aiming for development in the 2020s and launching in the 2030s.

The concept presumes a Coronagraph or Starshade. The same equipment would also be able to carry out other unique observations in the Milky Way and beyond.
