A brief overview detailing the capabilities if the XRT will be presented. This telescope will produce images of the solar coronal plasma at temperatures between 0.5 and 20 MK every 10 seconds.

Characterization of the temperature of the solar atmosphere is essential to proper development of magnetohydrodynamical models to represent the physics of the magnetically dominated corona. Recent models of the Unresolved Active Region Corona and emerging active region reconnection will be addressed in this context.

Dr. Cirtain is an alumni of the University of Memphis, Department of Physics.
