Highlights from eROSITA

Marcus Brüggen (Hamburg University)

Tuesday 08/06/2021 @ 14:00, Sala IV piano Battiferro

The X-ray survey instrument eROSITA was launched in Sep 2019 and the first data has already been rich in new discoveries. I will give an overview of some science highlights, such as the eROSITA bubbles, X-ray bridges between clusters of galaxies and superclusters. The combination of radio and X-ray data has given new insights into AGN feedback in galaxy groups and clusters. Finally, I will give an outlook of ongoing work in cosmology and the circumgalactic medium and discuss the forthcoming release of the Early Data.
