Q&A: X-ray Astronomy
Could you describe the differences between the technology of the Chandra and Suzaku (Astro-EII) missions?
With Susaku the focus is on spectroscopy, from soft (low energy) X-rays up
to gamma-rays. With Chandra the focus is more on imaging in the relatively
soft part of the X-ray spectrum. So, the two missions complement each other
Our web-site (http://chandra.harvard.edu/about/) has more details about the technical
aspects of the mission. Please see these two websites for more details
