The High Energy X-ray Probe (HEX-P)

The High Energy X-ray Probe (HEX-P) is the next-generation general purpose X-ray observatory with an unprecedented broad bandpass from 0.2 to 80 keV. With this leap in observational capability, HEX-P will be capable of addressing fundamental questions about the extreme environments around black holes and neutron stars, map the growth of supermassive black holes, and probe the effect they have on their environments. HEX-P will resolve the hard X-ray emission from dense regions of our Galaxy to understand the high-energy source populations and provide the essential broad-band capability needed to follow up time domain and multi-messenger (TDAMM) astrophysical events.
