Abstract
The great X-ray observatories of the 20th century relied exclusively on the Wolter Type I optics design to provided true imaging in the energy band 0.1-10 keV. What are the prospects for continued development of the W-I geometry in the 21st Century and what alternative designs, technologies and bright ideas maybe poised to make an impact in X-ray astronomy in the future?
