[108.01] Bold Dreams and Big Questions: The Future of Astronomy in the 21st and NSF's Role

M. S. Turner (NSF)

This is a special time in astronomy: Astronomers know much about the Universe, but understand much less. Profound questions can be formulated and the tools are at hand to answer them. I will discuss my vision of this future as well as NSF's role in realizing the bold dreams and answering the big questions.
