Saint Mary's Astronomy & Physics professor Dr. Luigi Gallo has been appointed to lead a team of Canadian scientists working on a Japanese-led space exploration program Astro-H. Astro-H is an X-ray telescope that will probe the physics of black holes and giant clusters of galaxies with an accuracy and precision unparalleled in space telescope history. Dr Gallo and his students will be among the first astronomers to use Astro-H's new high precision instruments.
