[69.05] Science with the Solar-B X-Ray Telescope

E.E. Deluca, M.A. Weber, L. Golub (CfA)

The Solar-B mission will launch in 2006 with three telescopes: a high resolution visible light telescope feeding filtergraph and spectropolarimeter focal plane instruments, a grazing incidence X-Ray telescope and an EUV spectrograph. This combination of instruments will provide detailed information on Active Region evolution, heating, connectivity and dynamics. The X-Ray telescope on Solar-B will be sensitive to emission from 1-50MK. Focal plane filters will allow us to follow the evolution of the bulk of the coronal plasma. This poster will describe the core science that will be done by XRT together with EIS and SOT. Joint observing programs will also be discussed.
