Following the recommendation to freeze co-operation with Russia, eROSITA was placed into safe mode during the ground contact on Saturday 26th February. 

Science operations with the instrument are currently paused. SRG/eROSITA has now completed four of its intended eight all-sky survey passes. 

We hope that circumstances will permit a return to normal operations as soon as possible. Analysis of the existing German eROSITA data by the consortium led by MPE continues.
