All-sky X-ray survey with eROSITA: Census of extended galactic sources

21/10/2021 @ 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM UTC

Two years ago, the new German eROSITA X-ray telescope was launched successfully onboard the Russian Spektr-RG observatory. eROSITA is carrying out the first all-sky survey in the X-rays up to 10 keV with a much better resolution and higher sensitivity than what was available before in the soft X-ray band. It will thus provide us with a new map of the hot, energetic universe with more than one million extragalactic and Galactic objects. In this talk, Manami Sasaki will talk about the telescope and its mission and present the first results on extended galactic sources like supernova remnants and the interstellar medium.
