China launches space telescope to observe black holes

Thursday June 15, China launched its first space x-ray telescope for observing black holes, pulsars and gamma ray bursts.

The Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT), named Insight, will help scientists to understand the evolution of black holes and observe magnetic fields and the interiors of pulsars and it also helps Chinese scientists search for gamma-ray bursts corresponding to gravitational waves and also allow to study how to pulsars can be used for spacecraft navigation, Xinhua said.

China has sent into orbit its first X-ray space telescope which will study phenomena including black holes, pulsars and gamma-ray explosions, state media reports. The 2.5-ton telescope can be regarded as a small observatory, although it carries a trio of detectors; the high, the medium and the low energy X-ray telescopes.

And the gunman was over by the third-base dugout with a clear view of the field and everybody on it. "This is not who we are". The gunman also had three domestic violence cases on his record - one involving the reckless discharge of a gun in 2006.

Based on the demodulation technique first proposed by Li Tipei, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), in 1993, the HE has a total detection area of more than 5,000 square centimeters, the world's largest in its energy band.

According to Zhang, Insight is more capable of finding black holes and neutron stars that emit bright X-rays than other countries' space telescopes, because it has a larger detection area and a broader energy range which makes it easier to scan the galaxy.

"These studies are expected to bring new breakthroughs in physics", he added.

Kanter added that body scans had revealed no evidence of acute or healing fractures to the chest, abdomen or skull. They are brutal and bad ", said Mr Warmbier .

Chief designer Lu Fangjun, of the payload of HXMT, says the space telescope will focus on the Galactic plane.

Black holes are usually undetectable, but when matter falls into a black hole, it is accelerated and heated, emitting X-rays in the process, Zhang explained.

The creative new function pushes the satellite's observation band up to 3 MeV and a very good energy spectrum, Zhang said.

Trump on Scalise's condition: 'He's in some trouble'
Steve Scalise is being treated for his injuries following Wednesday's shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice. He was out of surgery but remained in critical condition as of Wednesday afternoon, according to a statement from his family.

The launches are part of the scientific satellite program developed by China in parallel with its lunar exploration plan and manned space missions, which include establishing a permanent orbital station.
