Tiny CREPT Instrument to Study the Radiation Belts
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Feb 19, 2013
A smaller version of an instrument now flying on NASA's Van Allen Probes has won a coveted spot aboard an upcoming NASA-sponsored Cubesat mission - the perfect platform for this pint-size, solid-state telescope. Weighing just 3.3 pounds, the Compact Relativistic Electron and Proton Telescope (CREPT) will "augment the science of a major flagship mission" and demonstrate the effectiveness of two new technologies that make the instrument four times faster than its 30-pound sibling at gathering and pr ... read more
