Abstract: The Chandra Deep Field-North, which has at its center the Hubble Deep Field-North, has reached an exposure of 1 Ms and is now available to the public for analysis. This great astronomical resource will be described to the community, including the details of the data procurement and reduction by the CDF-N team. The scientific focus of the talk will be the population of X-ray sources detected in the CDF-N below the faintest detection limits of X-ray observatories such as ROSAT and ASCA. These include fairly low-luminosity AGN and star-forming galaxies out to z=1 and possibly very high redshift (z>= 5) obscured AGN. The exciting new prospects for studying these populations in the X-ray band will be discussed.
