We explore the high-energy universe using X-ray and gamma-ray astrophysical satellites. Our research objectives are to reveal: (1) How is our fruitful world formed? Who produces such variety elements in 13.8-billion-long history of our universe? (2) How are black holes, neutron stars, and white dwarfs born? How do they affect to the evolution of our universe? (3) How are high-energy cosmic-rays accelerated? We are also developing innovative X-ray and gamma-ray detectors for future satellite missions.
