Stars and eROSITA

eROSITA is the primary instrument on the Russian "Spectrum-Roentgen-Gamma" (SRG) satellite scheduled to be launched in spring 2019. Over a period of four years eROSITA will perform an imaging all-sky survey in X-rays at 0.3 - 10.0 keV energies that is expected to detect more than half a million stars and stellar systems. The survey phase will be followed by a pointed observations phase with a nominal duration of three years.
