X-ray Science Interest Group

The goal of the X-ray Science Analysis Group (XRSIG) is to provide quantitative metrics and assessments to NASA in regard to future X-ray observatories. Specifically, the XRSIG will

  • Track and analyze evolving science goals and requirements in X-ray astronomy, especially as current "hot" topics evolve.
  • Provide an active communication forum for X-ray astrophysics (e.g., via town hall meetings at venues such as AAS and APS meetings).
  • Support mission studies and concept development for future X-ray observatories.
  • Analyze technology development and prioritization plans with respect to redefined science goals and the evolution of mission concepts (i.e., the XRSIG will aid the PhysPAG in analyzing technology needs).
  • The XRSIG is open to all members of the community.

    If you are interested in contributing to the work of the XRSIG, please subscribe using the link below. For other inquiries, e-mail co-chairs Ryan Hickox at ryan.c.hickox@dartmouth.edu, Grant Tremblay at grant.tremblay@cfa.harvard.edu, David Pooley at dpooley@trinity.edu, and Kristin Madsen at kmadsen@umbc.edu.
