Athena: ESA's space observatory for the 2020's

AuthorsBarcons, Xavier
Issue Date2015
CitationSXRA 2015
AbstractESA selected in 2014 the Athena mission to address the Hot and Energetic Universe science goals. Athena is for the time being the only observatory class space mission that is due for launch in the 2020s, and will therefore play a major role in most fields of astrophysics, together with other large facilities. At the moment, Athena is about to enter a Phase A industrial study, with an expected selection of a baseline concept around 2016. To this, a Phase B1 will follow, ready for mission adoption by ESA early 2020. Launch is forecasted for 2028. Esa has appointed an Athena Science Study Team (ASST) to provide scientific guidance throughout the study phase. To gain community support and help with the studies, the ASST launched an open call to serve in its community working groups and topical panels, to which 600 scientists from around the world responded. This structure is now starting to work in support of the mission.
