NASA 2020 Mission Cosmic X-rays To Study Energy From Black Holes
NASA 2020 mission to discover the secret surrounding black holes could shed more light on these energy fields. The space agency plans to launch the Polarimetry Explorer, a cosmic X-ray, to uncover the secret behind black holes.
NASA 2020 Mission
Black holes have always been fascinating objects for scientists at NASA. Since they can suck up everything surrounding them, studying black holes can be difficult. However, researchers found a way to learn more about these objects in the universe. By looking into the energetic space surrounding these objects, scientists can discover more about them.
The Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer mission which is slated for a 2020 launch might be the key to discovering how black holes work. The mission will include three telescopes that will measure the cosmic X-ray polarization. From this data, scientists can learn how physics works for these objects.
According to Ars Technica, total funding amounting to $188 million has been allocated to this mission. This will be used in the development of instruments and equipment. The Italian Space Agency will also donate X-ray with high sensitivity ratings.
In an effort to discover extreme gravitational, electric, and magnetic fields, NASA plans to look into black holes. In science fiction, these enigmatic objects are favorites and are often shown as a passage to another dimension. Black holes will not be the sole focus of this probe. Exotic objects in space will also be part of the mission.
The launch will be made through NASA's Astrophysics Explorers program. Initially, there were fourteen proposals submitted in 2014. Of those proposals, three concepts were selected. Based on a report by the Indian Express, Martin Weisskopf will lead the mission. Meanwhile, Ball Aerospace which is located in Broomfield, Colorado will build the spacecraft.
NASA 2020 mission to explore black holes will improve humanity's understanding of these objects in space.
