2. The Solar System Through Chandra's Eyes
Planets, satellites and comets typically have temperatures well below 1000 degrees, but they still can produce X-rays in a number of ways, most of which involve the Sun directly or indirectly. Although the X-ray power is weak, ranging from a few megawatts to a few gigawatts for Jupiter, it provides information difficult to come by with other telescopes.
