STROBE-X: Capturing the universe in motion

20 June 2024 • 17:10 - 17:30 Japan Standard Time | Room G414/415, North - 4F

Abstract

The Spectroscopic Time-Resolving Observatory for Broadband X-rays (STROBE-X) is a proposed NASA Astrophysics Probe-class mission. STROBE-X is a time domain and multi-messenger mission designed to provide an unparalleled laboratory for probing strong gravity and the behavior of matter in extreme environments. The instrument suite encompasses a wide-field monitor and two pointed instruments to provide transient discovery and the capability for rapid follow-up with broadband (0.2–30 keV), high time resolution spectroscopy. Over 10,000 pointed observations will be conducted each year and STROBE-X will be able to slew to targets within minutes in response to transients triggered by on-board or ground alerts. Here, we present an overview of the STROBE-X science drivers, mission design, and instrument complement.
