Synopsis

Since 1999, the Chandra X-ray Observatory has provided unprecedented high-spatial resolution X-ray vision of the invisible universe. Together with its high-resolution X-ray spectroscopic capabilities, Chandra continues breakthrough studies of our universe from the distant supermassive black holes and the large-scale environments around galaxy clusters to stars and objects in our solar system. Lynx, formerly known as the X-ray Surveyor, is one of the large strategic mission concepts identified in the 2013 NASA Astrophysics Roadmap ("Enduring Quests, Daring Visions"). Lynx is the first future X-ray mission concept planning to match the spatial-resolution, and thus be a true successor to Chandra. The high-resolution X-ray imaging with a tremendous increase in sensitivity will allow Lynx to pursue multiple quests deeper into the invisible X-ray universe. This workshop seeks to leverage Chandra's legacy and maximize its impact on the development of Lynx science and design objectives. Lynx's Chandra-like spatial resolution, together with a tremendous increase in sensitivity will allow multiple quests deeper into the invisible X-ray universe.
