Professor Luigi Gallo is looking forward to using ASTRO-H, the next-generation X-ray space telescope, to study the flow of material around supermassive blackholes. Professor Gallo is the Principal Investigator for the Canadian ASTRO-H Metrology System (CAMS), a laser alignment system that will be placed on the X-ray observatory. This is Canada’s technological contribution to the international project lead by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). On March 19, 2015, the Canadian Space Agency announced that the CAMS package has been built and delivered to JAXA.
