The ROSAT mission

The launch of the ROentgen SATellite (ROSAT) into space on 1 June 1990 marked the start of a mission that would allow researchers to perform an all-sky survey of X-ray sources with an imaging telescope for the first time. X-rays arise in the Universe by unusually hot, high-energy processes, which often entail extreme states of matter such as black holes or neutron stars.
