The Chandra X-ray Observatory is the U.S. follow-on to the Einstein Observatory. Chandra was formerly known as AXAF, the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility, but renamed by NASA in December, 1998. The Chandra spacecraft carries a high resolution mirror, two imaging detectors, and two sets of transmission gratings. Important Chandra features are: - an order of magnitude improvement in spatial resolution, - good sensitivity from 0.1 to 10 keV, - and the capability for high spectral resolution observations over most of this range.
