Registration is now open for the Chandra’s First Decade of Discovery Symposium. This symposium will take place on Sept. 21-25, 2009, in Boston, Mass.
Chandra’s First Decade of Discovery is the fifth in a series highlighting unique imaging and spectroscopic results from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. This event will highlight key science results from the first 10 years of operation of the Chandra X-ray Observatory. The focus will be on results that have had the largest impact on astrophysics. These results include The Cosmic Evolution of AGN (Active Galactic Nucleus), AGN outflows, evolutionary processes in galaxy cluster, and our understanding of normal galaxies including Earth’s own galactic center. More locally, high-resolution studies of compact objects, supernova remnants and star-forming regions have led to changes in human understanding of the stellar life cycle.
The registration deadline is Sept. 4, 2009.
