I will send Telescope Link to study X-ray Imaging (IXPE) To NASA Its first image of Earth, showing the remains of a star that exploded in the seventeenth century, was launched into low Earth orbit on December 9, 2021 by the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

According to the British newspaper, the Daily Mail, the agency last month measured instruments and is preparing to track supernova remnants (SNR) in a galaxy called Cassiobia A.

Exploding star

It is the remnant of a giant star 11,000 light-years away, first seen in the 17th century, spreading across shock waves and heating up the surrounding gas, resulting in rapid cosmic ray particles emitting bright light in X-ray light.

IXPE integrates with the Chandra X-ray Telescope, one of NASA’s flagship space laboratories launched in 1999 to study various aspects of the X – ray spectrum.

The telescope is a joint venture between NASA and the Italian Space Agency, and is the first space laboratory dedicated to studying the polarity of X-rays coming from objects such as exploding stars and black holes. Is traveling.

The new image, released by NASA, contains IXPE data displayed as a purple ball with data from the moon outlined in blue.

The concentration of purple is similar to the intensity of X-ray light observed by IXPE, and blue shows high energy X-ray data.
