Life-environmentology, Astronomy, and PlanetarY Ultraviolet Telescope Assembly (LAPYUTA) mission: instrument overview and development updates

17 June 2024 • 17:30 - 19:00 Japan Standard Time | Room G5, North - 1F

Abstract

The Life-environmentology, Astronomy, and PlanetarY Ultraviolet Telescope Assembly (LAPYUTA) mission aims to carry out spectroscopy with a large effective area (>300 cm2) and a high spatial resolution (0.1 arc-sec) and imaging in far ultraviolet spectral range (110-190 nm) from a space telescope. The main part of the science payload is a Cassegrain-type telescope with a 60 cm-diameter primary mirror. Two main UV instruments are installed on the focal plane of the telescope: a spectrograph and a slit imager. Here we present the LAPYUTA concept design, the overview of the spacecraft and instruments, and the updated status of technology developments.
