eROSITA was launched onboard the SRG satellite on July 13, 2019. It provides all-sky X-ray imaging at 0.3-8 keV with 15″-30″ angular resolution, and covers galactic longitudes 180 < l < 360.
Calibration and Performance Verification Observations officially started on October 13, and were completed on December 8, 2019. The CalPV data release is planned (TBC). See below for approved eROSITA_DE PV observations.
The first eROSITA all-sky survey was completed in June 2020, revealing a spectacular vision of the hot and energetic universe. The result has created a new map for astronomers, with this new survey capturing over one million objects – far exceeding the number discovered by previous X-ray telescopes. See more information here.
