Egypt – NASA launches telescope to monitor SpaceX …

(MENAFN– Yum 7)

SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket explodes with NASA’s Imaging X – Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) satellite. First announced in 2017, IXPE is the first satellite capable of measuring the polarity of X-rays coming from black holes and cosmic sources. Stars are neutrons, according to an involved technical report.

The refrigerator-sized satellite has three telescopes that can monitor and measure direction, arrival time, energy, and polarization of light, and when combined with data from all of these telescopes, NASA can create images that give us further insight into how mysterious the sky is. The bodies – the emitters of the rays – work. They believe that X-rays, for example, will give us a detailed view of the structure of the supernova remnant crab nebula with a fast-rotating neutron star at its center.

By observing black holes, IXPE could help scientists gain more insights and expand mankind’s knowledge of areas of space we still do not know, and provide clues as to why they rotate and how they absorb cosmic matter, although this could lead to new discoveries.

Martin Weisscope, the mission’s chief analyst, said at a conference: ‘IXPE will help us to test and refine our current theories about how the universe works, so that we can discover more amazing theories about these strange things than we might have guessed.

SpaceX used a Falcon 9 rocket from a previous mission for this launch, and if all goes well, ‘read the instructions’ on the rocket’s first-class company’s unmanned spacecraft after being launched into space.
