Response to Elvis (2015) article
Our response to Elvis article (at Astro-ph Archive)
In a response to the “Cosmic Birth to Living Earths” report, Elvis (2015) critiqued a subset of our findings, focusing on the detection and characterization of rocky exoplanets in the habitable zone. The AURA HDST team has prepared a response (link above) to address several issues with the Elvis paper. In our reply, we confirm that HDST would play a transformative role in the study of terrestrial worlds. Its capabilities for studying exoplanets would be truly unique, even in 2035, and would complement HDST's broad and deep range of exciting astrophysics.
