Research Scientist Suvi Gezari has been named Science Lead for the Dynamic Universe on NASA’s UVEX (UltraViolet EXplorer) space telescope mission. UVEX is NASA’s next Astrophysics Medium-Class Explorer mission and is scheduled to launch in 2030. It will survey ultraviolet light across the entire sky to provide more insight into galaxies near and far, localize gravitational wave events, characterize supernovae within hours of explosion, and provide a legacy data archive for the science community.
