Abstract: ASTRO-H is an international X-ray observing satellite that Japan plans to launch with the H-II A rocket in 2014. The satellite features cutting-edge instruments, capable of measuring X-ray energies with unprecedented accuracy and producing the first ever images of the high-energy X-ray universe. The other important point is that ASTRO-H will be the only X-ray observatory people outside of the team can use. Today, we introduce not only about the hardware but also the scientific
use and how to apply your observations.
