HORUS is a NASA Origins Science Mission concept study to construct and fly an optical/UV orbiting telescope to survey star formation environments near and far, under Principal Investigator Prof. Paul Scowen. The NASA NRA for the Origins Science Missions came out in early 2004. HORUS was one of nine missions selected out of a total field of 26 for concept study. Our initial report was given at a special session at the January 2005 AAS meeting in San Diego.
