The 60th birthday of Rich Kelley was celebrated at Tanegashima. Dr. Kelley is the head of the SXS, the primary instrument of ASTRO-H. The principle part of the SXS employs an X-ray Microcalorimeter. Rich has been involved in the research and development of such microcalorimeters for over 30 years — more than half of his life! Both ASTRO-H and Rich’s research are moving on to the next stage!
