Canadians contribute to next-gen X-ray telescope

This is exciting - the first time that Canadians have been involved in an X-ray satellite.

ASTRO-H marks the first time Canada is part of an x-ray astronomy mission. The science working group will design the observatory’s science plan while also receiving privileged access to the proprietary data during the first year of operations. McNamara will specifically study the effects of black holes on emergent galaxies.
