Whether you are simply curious about the instrument, an astronomer, or a member of the X-IFU Consortium, you should find the information you are looking for.

If you want some suggestions, we have selected a few pages below:

  • Are you a member of the astronomy community? You can have a look at the page For the community
  • Are you simply interested in astronomy? Head over to our page “X-rays and Astrophysical objects” to get a glimpse of the great science that the X-IFU will enable.
