During the next several years a number of new space borne missions and ground-based facilities will be in operation, extending in various directions our reach in understanding the origin and the evolution of the universe. Fundamental issues like planetary and galaxy formation, exoplanets, dark matter, dark energy and gravity will be addressed using the most advanced instruments and techniques, fully exploiting the universe as the ultimate laboratory to test the laws of physics. The advent of increasingly performing constellations of nano-satellites will add a new dimension in this field, decreasing development cost and time and providing new observational opportunities.
