MSU and Hinode

Known as "Solar-B" prior to launch, Hinode is a follow-on to the very successful Yohkoh ("Solar-A") mission. MSU is a part of the Mission Operations and Data Analysis team for Hinode's X-Ray Telescope (XRT). The XRT was constructed by the Solar & Stellar X-ray Group at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

MSU's XRT team members are Keiji Yoshimura, Aki Takeda and a graduate student, Rhiannon Fleming.
