BeppoSAX at MPE

SAX satellite



The Italian-Dutch X-ray astronomy satellite Beppo-Sax has been launched into an earth orbit in April 1996. Its mirror telescopes including their focal plane instruments have been calibrated in the MPE PANTER test facility. After the calibration and verification phase the first observational programme was initiated in autumn 1996. Nineteen observation proposals of MPE, totaling an observation time of 833.8 ks, have been accepted for the first period, the AO-1.
