Both international and Japanese members of the Astro-H team are invited to join in study meetings which are held every year. These meetings are concerned not only with studies of the satellite, but also with things like discussing the science that can be done with Astro-H and with the progress of ongoing simulations of aspects of the mission. Everyone is very busy over the three days of the meeting!
This year in Atami, a summer school was held. The picture below commemorates the young researchers who gave the top presentations of a research plan for Astro-H. They are pictured along with the lecturers. Everyone looks happy!
