Cross-posting from X-Ray Astronomy Recovery Mission (XARM) thread:

Some good news as this mission will replace the recently lost Hitomi.

Quote
WASHINGTON — NASA and the Japanese space agency JAXA will start work this spring on an orbiting X-ray astronomy telescope to replace one lost shortly after launch last year.

In a presentation to the Committee on Astronomy and Astrophysics of the National Academies March 28, Paul Hertz, director of NASA’s astrophysics division, said a formal start of the project known as the X-Ray Astronomy Recovery Mission (XARM) will take place shortly after the start of the new Japanese fiscal year April 1.

“We are moving forward with the X-Ray Astronomy Recovery Mission,” Hertz said. The mission, he said, was included in the Japanese government’s budget for the new fiscal year, pending approval by the country’s parliament, the Diet.

Will the Asnaro program end after Asnaro-2? Asnaro-1 is in Orbit since 2014. They will need building a successor soon. What is the status?

GAMAGORI, Aichi Prefecture—A university team here plans to launch “an artificial star” into orbit that will transmit images of outer space to Earth and be visible to the naked eye.

The ultra-small satellite will be launched aboard an H-2A rocket of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) from the Tanegashima Space Center in Kagoshima Prefecture in April next year at the earliest, the team at the Aichi University of Technology said at a news conference on April 28.
