#EZScience: Exploring the X-ray Universe

By studying X-rays in deep space, we can learn about some of the most violent and extreme objects in the universe, such as black holes and the remains of stars that have exploded. NASA’s Imaging X-Ray Polarimetry Explorer, IXPE, will study these phenomena in a new way. Learn more in this episode of #EZScience, starring NASA associate administrator for science Dr. Thomas Zurbuchen and Smithsonian Under Secretary for Science and Research Dr. Ellen Stofan.

IXPE is set to launch Dec. 9 at 1:00 a.m. EST (06:00 UTC) from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Watch the live broadcast:
