On March 22, the Director of the Chandra X-ray Center Belinda Wilkes presented Revealing the Invisible Universe to an audience of about 75. She discussed the wealth of X-ray data gathered since the late 1990s and the discoveries it has led to. Supported by NASA’s fleet of Great Observatories, X-ray research has become common across the astronomical community.
Dr. Wilkes discussed X-ray data as part of the current multi-messenger approach to astronomical study, and she looked into the future of our observatories and the X-ray discipline beyond Chandra.
