NASA Creates a new office

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center is opening up a new office, the Einstein's Probe Office. The program will investigate the Universe's mysteries and attempt to answer questions about things such as black holes, dark energy, and the cosmic microwave background.

The Beyond Einstein Program is proposing to build two major observatories and three smaller probes. NASA has commissioned a research committee to determine which mission is the best to develop first. The recommendations are scheduled to be released this coming September.

As NASA puts it, "The Beyond Einstein Program is designed to provide key information to help answer fundamental questions about the origin and evolution of the universe."
