X-ray Imaging and Spectroscopy Mission (XRISM) (formerly XARM)

The X-ray Imaging and Spectroscopy Mission (XRISM) is a JAXA/NASA collaborative mission, with ESA participation. The objective of the mission is to investigate celestial X-ray objects in the Universe with high-throughput imaging and high-resolution spectroscopy. XRISM is expected to launch in 2021 (TBR) on a JAXA H-2A rocket.

That technical issue will delay the launch of XRISM, which was previously scheduled for early 2022, but Hertz said the Japanese space agency JAXA has not yet set a new launch date.

The X-ray Imaging and Spectroscopy Mission (XRISM) is an X-ray observatory, which is the 7th in the series of the X-ray observatories from Japan. The mission of XRISM is to recover and resume the study of the prime objective of ASTRO-H/Hitomi “to solve outstanding astrophysical questions with high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy”. It is currently planned to be launched in FY2022 with an HII-A rocket from the Tanegashima Space Center, Kagoshima, Japan.

XRISM is expected to launch in 2023 on a JAXA HII-A rocket from Japan’s Tanegashima Space Center.

The Japanese government fiscal year runs April 1 through March 30.  It is possible that the launch will still be in JFY 2022, but also in chronological year 2023 = January 1 through March 31.

[Progress report] Thermal vacuum test of satellite system is underway at Tsukuba Space Center. Simulating the vacuum and temperature environment on orbit and confirming that each function of the satellite works properly! Left photo: State of the satellite being carried into the space chamber. Right photo: State of the satellite being carried into the space chamber. A test device was also installed to simulate the heat entering the satellite from the sun and the earth.

Activity Report

This time, we conducted a thermal vacuum test on the X-ray spectroscopic imaging satellite XRISM (Crysm), which is currently under development, and confirmed that each function of the satellite works properly. #XRISM uses X-rays to observe the wind blowing across the galaxy, #hot plasma , and attempt to elucidate the evolution of celestial bodies.
