The Exoplanetary Circumstellar Environments and Disk Explorer (EXCEDE) is a proposed NASA mission. The aim is to explore about 350 nearby exoplanetary systems using an innovative optical system to allow one to work close to the bright light of the parent star. For more information on the project see the EXCEDE webpage or the UA News Story on EXCEDE.
