X-ray astronomy in the next decade at JENAM 2009

Start date: 22 Apr 2009, 14:00
Address: de Havilland Campus, University of Hertfordshire, United Kingdom

More info:

These sessions will report new results from current X-ray satellites, and look forward to the proposed future X-ray mission, IXO (the International X-ray Observatory), which is a merger of the former XEUS and Constellation-X concepts. IXO will enter the US Decadal Survey process around the time of the meeting, and shortly thereafter will be reviewed by ESA's advisory structure for the "Cosmic Vision" program. Talks will cover the following subject areas:

  • Black Holes and Matter Under Extreme Conditions
  • Galaxy Formation, Galaxy Clusters and Cosmic Feedback
  • Life Cycles of Matter and Energy
The intent is to summarise the new knowledge we have obtained on these topics with Chandra, XMM-Newton and Suzaku, and use this to help motivate the performance requirements for IXO.
