Questions we’d like to
address with high-resolution X-ray
How do OB stars produce X-rays at all? What’s the connection between their massive winds and their X-ray emission?
What’s the nature of wind instabilites and shocks in
normal hot stars?
Can this (class of) model(s) work?
What role do magnetic fields play in hot stars and
their X-ray emission? (e.g. do B stars have coronae? How can young
hot stars be so hot and bright in X-rays? How can hot stars with extreme X-ray properties be understood?)
