WFIRST Science Data Center
Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope

The Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is the top-ranked large space mission from the Astro2010 Decadal Survey. NASA is conducting a formulation phase study of a design reference mission that would be capable of addressing essential questions in the areas of exoplanets, dark energy, and infrared astrophysics.

NASA has indicated its intent to assign to IPAC the role associated with major mission science centers in support of a WFIRST mission, analogous to the Spitzer Science Center assignment. IPAC is participating in the formulation phase study.
