Darwin - an experimental astronomy mission to search for extrasolar planets
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2009

As a response to ESA call for mission concepts for its Cosmic Vision 2015–2025 plan, we propose a mission called Darwin. Its primary goal is the study of terrestrial extrasolar planets and the search for life on them. In this paper, we describe different characteristics of the instrument.
