The next generation X-ray observatory “Hitomi” (ASTRO-H) was developed in an international collaboration including Japan and NASA. The cutting edge instrument on board is the “X-ray micro-calorimeter,” which observes X-rays from space with the w (more…)
Two members of the CPT-SCOPE team, namely Anastasiya Dykyy and Timo Stein, presented the preliminary results of the CPT-SCOPE flight-test aboard BEXUS 20 on October 10, 2015, at the 1st Symposium on Space Educational Activities. (more…)
On October 10, 2015 at 09:16:54 UTC the BEXUS 20 stratospheric balloon was launched from Esrange in Kiruna, northern-Sweden. On-board was the CPT-SCOPE instrument developed by students from Norway and Germany alongside two other student experiments HACORD (Belgium) and COSPA (Germany). The CPT-SCOPE team was the first Norwegian participation selected by European space experts for the Swedish-German BEXUS program which is supported by ESA and other organisations. (more…)
