More about the mission:

IXPE is a mission of NASA and the Italian Space Agency, announced since January 3, 2017. NASA and the Italian Space Agency have made various advances since then to make this mission a total success. NASA also announced that the mission will last approx. 2 years. The mission will take off with the help of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the SpaceX company owned by Elon Musk. And in connection with the launch, it will take place at Space Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Most of the things this mission will do are based on X-rays used a lot in this study. The mission will determine the geometry and emission mechanism of active galactic nuclei and microquasars. It will also try to find the configuration of the magnetic field and its size on different planets. The mission led by NASA and the Italian space agency will make (according to NASA) an amazing discovery: it will try to find the mechanism of producing X-rays in pulsations of celestial objects. It will provide many other data from space and will do many experiments in space. In short, this mission will be able to do things that probably no one and nothing could do. If IXPE will be able to do all of the above and do as many experiments as possible (and succeed), it will take an important step in the next discoveries in space. In addition, IXPE will be one of the largest missions of the Italian space agency. The entire IXPE telescope is 1.1 m in diameter and approx. 5.5 m. 

We wish succes to all people that work for this mission.
