ASCA and YOHKOH: The Current Generation of Small Japanese Satellites
I would like to introduce the current status and recent results of the satellite ASCA on behalf of the X-ray astronomy group at ISAS under collaboration with MIT/Penn State University, NASA and other international organizations. ASCA (Advanced Satellite for Cosmology and Astrophysics, originally called ASTRO-D before launch) was produced by the international cooperation and was launched by Japan’s university group. It is operated under the direction of Yasno Tanaka, assisted by Inoue, Nagase and others.
