CHEAR Missions

Canadian Astro-H Mission

Astro-H is a space-based X-ray observatory, currently scheduled to be launched in 2014. The mission is an international collaboration, led by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) with participation from institutions in the US, Canada and Europe through the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), and the European Space Agency (ESA). Astro-H will be the sixth X-ray telescope launched by the Japanese Institute of Space and Astronomical Science (ISAS), succeeding the currently active Suzaku satellite (ASTRO-EII). Astro-H is planned to be in operation for at least three years.
