(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 launch in the 2030s.

The concept presumes a coronagraph or starshade. The same equipment would also be able to carry out other unique observations within the Milky Way and beyond.
