Russia launches international X-ray astronomy mission.
21:19

On July 13, 2019 at 12:30 UTC the Russian "Proton-M” rocket-carrier was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome. The rocket equipped with the "DM-03” booster orbited the “Spektr-RG” astronomical observatory with dual X-ray telescopes developed by Russian and German scientists. The new observatory will detect X-ray emissions from across the sky, including those from huge clusters of galaxies. By measuring the mass, luminosity and distance of distant galaxies, Spektr-RG could help astronomers better understand dark energy.
