CXO Project Science


Who is Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO) Project Science?

The X-Ray Astronomy Group at NASA's Marshall Spaceflight Center provides scientific/technical support to the CXO Project on a day to day basis. Chandra was formerly known as the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF). The CXO Project Scientist is Dr. Martin Weisskopf. For some very nice pictures of CXO and CXO science instruments as well as a brief discussion of CXO's scientific capabilities, see this Presentation to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics by the Deputy Project Scientist, Dr. Steve O'Dell. Here is a more recent photo of the Chandra Project Scientist with Tony Lavoie, a former Chandra Project Manager.
