25 years. The long term science drivers will be presented and set the
technology challenges to be met by future missions. These science
drivers include resolving the event horizon of black holes so as to
directly observe the effects of strong field general relativity and
observing the formation of the first objects in the universe at
redshift 10 to 20. New technologies in X-ray optics and detectors to
enable new science capabilities will be reviewed and future missions
