Micro-X

The High-Resolution Microcalorimeter X-ray Imaging Rocket

Micro-X is an X-ray space telescope payload being developed for NASA's sounding rocket program. We will fly the first Transition-Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter array in space. Our versatile science program includes high-resolution spectroscopy of supernova remnants and searches for dark matter in the Milky Way.
