The Mesmerizing Universe: X-Ray Vision for the Stars
NASA has begun a series of studies of four concepts that will in a few years’ time produce candidate designs for a major space observatory to begin construction later next decade. One of these is the X-Ray Surveyor.
The X-Ray Surveyor mission will probe some of the most explosive and high-energy objects in our Universe, and will provide insight into the seeds of Black Holes, the formation and evolution of galaxies and clusters of galaxies and even of the stars themselves.
Please join our regular hosts, Tony Darnell, Alberto Conti, and Harley Thronson, as they discuss with Dr. Alexey Vikhlinin from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Dr. Laura Lopez from Ohio State, Dr. Steve Allen from Stanford and Dr. Jessica Gaskin from NASA Marshall Space Flight Center the science that will be revealed by a telescope observing X-Rays emanating from our Universe.
