Insight-HXMT is China's first X-ray astronomy satellite and was successfully launched on June 15th, 2017. It carries three sets of collimated X-ray instruments, covering energy ranges of 1-15 keV, 5-30 keV, and 20-250 keV, respectively. In addition, it can serve as a nearly all-sky monitor for high energy sources between 0.2 to 3 MeV, such as bright pulsars and gamma-ray bursts. The enhanced X-ray Timing and Polarimetry (eXTP) mission is a flagship space X-ray observatory developed by a Sino-European scientific consortium, led by the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). eXTP will carry two sets of focusing X-ray telescopes for spectroscopy (9 telescopes) and polarimetry (4 telescopes) observations, 40 modules of collimated X-ray detectors for timing observations and a wide field monitor. eXTP may be launched around 2027 to study the equation of state of ultra-dense matter, and to explore the conditions of strong-field gravity and the physics of strong magnetic field.
