Abstract

Every ten years the astronomy and astrophysics community in the United States undertakes a survey intended to prioritize plans for major ground- and space-based astronomical facilities for the coming decade. New Worlds, New Horizons (NWNH) was released in August 2010 and represents the community's advice to the United States' funding agencies about the top priorities for 2010-2020. Here we focus on the recommendations of NWNH for space-based exoplanet missions to be considered by NASA, and on the plans developed to date for how NASA will respond to the science goals and missions set out for them by NWNH.
