NASA's most current X-ray telescope rockets into orbit

  • 10-December-2021

  NASA's most current X-ray observatory soared into orbit Thursday to reveal insight into detonated stars, dark openings and other rough high-energy situation developing in the universe. SpaceX launched the rocket on its $214 million mission from Kennedy Space Center. It's called IXPE, short for Imaging X-ray Polarization Explorer. Researchers said the observatory — really three telescopes in one — will divulge the most dramatic and outrageous parts of the universe as at no other time. “IXPE is going to open a new window on the X-ray sky,” Brian Ramsey, NASA's deputy principal scientist, said this week. Operations should start one month from now. NASA is collaborating with the Italian Space Agency on the project.
