ESA projekt

The goal of our ESA project is best described by its title:"PREPARATION FOR ATHENA MISSION BY ESTABLISHING SLOVAK RESEARCH TEAM ORIENTED  TO EXISTING X-RAY MISSIONS AND AGN STUDY". We will train our team in work with XMM-Newton (ESA), Swift (NASA), Chandra (NASA) and NuSTAR (NASA) satellites. This will be the first year topic. During the second year, we will be educated in AGN phenomenology and physics. Our goal is to become serious partners in AGN research, which is (almost) absent topic in Slovakia. Participants and potential collaborators from other institutes are welcome.
