NASA has granted SpaceX a $50 million contract to launch an advanced device that will allow scientists to study unusual objects in space. NASA said that the Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) is designed to study X-right light that comes from a black hole and neutron stars. The report said that the study of active galactic nuclei, magnetars, and pulsar wind nebulae will also be advantageous to IXPE. The device is composed of three alike space telescope that has sensitive technology detection. The total cost of the project is $50.3 million and will be launched in April 2021 at the Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Gwynne Shotwell, SpaceX president said that SpaceX is honored NASA for continuing its trust in their proven launch vehicles to deliver important science payload to orbit. NASA aims that the mission will help discover the universe’s origin, life force, and other objects in space that need to be discovered. A study published in a journal said that the IXPE will expand its observation in space by improving its devices that measure energy, time, and location. As stated by James Gleeson, a spokesperson for SpaceX, there will be launches that SpaceX will perform for NASA in the future including the business projects for the International Space Station.
