The Yohkoh Soft X-ray Telescope

Table of Contents

The Yohkoh Soft X-ray Telescope (SXT) has had a discovery-filled ten-year history thus far, and many of its discoveries appear in the pages below. For simplicity we have based this material on the "Science Nuggets," a weekly series of messages from the observers. These began only in 1997, so necessarily some nice things (for example, the "Masuda flare") are not well represented here. Otherwise they provide a good sampling of the wide range of phenomena and physics revealed by soft X-ray imaging of the solar corona.
