The Observatory Science of NewAthena: exploring thermal and non-thermal processes in our Galaxy and beyond

E. Costantini and the Athena SRDT
SRON Netherlands Institute for Space Research

On behalf of the Athena Science redefinition Team, I will review the exciting themes that NewAthena will explore as a X-ray observatory. It will explore stars and their environments at every stage of their evolution, from birth to the aftermath of their explosion. At the same time NewAthena will have an important role in the multi messenger domain. NewAthena will have an important role in studying the origin and evolution of black holes and their environment through the study of transient events.
