Astro-H introductory movie opened to the public.

In April of 2012 in the visitor’s corner of the Sagamihara campus, a large movie screen was installed. Movies about some of the research rockets and about exploration missions at ISAS are shown on this screen. To take advantage of this, the Astro-H project team and the public relations office have teamed to produce a movie that introduces the satellite, as well as the astronomical objects it will observe and the detectors it will carry (pictures 1 & 2). This Introduction to Astro-H movie has also been publicly opened on line on the official JAXA public website JAXA Digital Archives. Please have a look at the Astro-H satellite and the dynamic universe it will heroically bring to us!
