Announcement of approved target list of Astro-E2 AO-1
We greatly appreciate so many proposals were submitted to the Astro-E2
AO-1 program through ISAS, NASA and ESA. We would like to announce the
target list approved for AO-1 observations.
As far as the launch of Astro-E2 is concerned, JAXA decided to launch
it no earlier than April 2005, unfortunately. Though we have
mentioned the AO-1 observations would be performed from September 2005
(roughly 7 months after the launch), it will be shifted with the same
amount of time of the launch delay.
