The Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF) will be a long-lived observatory intended to carry out X-ray studies from space. Much of the design for AXAF has been predicated on the highly successful HEAO-2/ Einstein X-ray observatory that Author: Harvey Tananbaum. On the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility and Cassini Saturn Probe Astrophysics, on Ap , as follows: The Task Group on AXAF [TGA] concludes that the revised AXAF program continues to meet the scientific expectations set forth in previous NRC reports, which have recommended AXAF as the highest-priority, new, large-scale program in. The AXAF, the x-ray component of NASA's great observatories, will launch in As integration and testing of the flight system are concluding, analysis of the ground calibration data continues. This analysis verified AXAF's unique capabilities for high-resolution imaging and for high-resolution dispersive by:

The Advanced X-Ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF) is a remarkable and unique scientific endeavor. It will be a space-based earth orbiting X-ray observatory, designed to address fundamental questions in astronomy and astrophysics. It is remarkable in that it represents enormous advances in observational : Martin C. Weisskopf. The X-Ray Astronomy Group at NASA's Marshall Spaceflight Center provides scientific/technical support to the CXO Project on a day to day basis. Chandra was formerly known as the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF). SCIENTIFIC ASSESSMENT OF THE RESTRUCTURED PROGRAM FOR THE ADVANCED X-RAY ASTROPHYSICS FACILITY (AXAF) Ap Summary The Task Group on AXAF (TGA), a joint panel of the Space Studies Board and the Board on Physics and Astronomy, finds that the restructured AXAF program-consisting of AXAF-I, to be launched into a high-Earth . The Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO), previously known as the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF), is a Flagship-class space telescope launched on STS by NASA on J Chandra is sensitive to X-ray sources times fainter than any previous X-ray telescope, enabled by the high angular resolution of its or: NASA / SAO / CXC.
