Published Nov 14, 2016

The Swedish National Space Board (SNSB) announced three candidate satellites to go to the next round of studies starting in the beginning of 2017. SPHiNX - a Segmented Polarimeter for High Energy X-rays is KTH's proposal for the small satellite mission. Its aim is to measure the polarisation of Gamma Ray Bursts - the brightest explosions in the universe.

Which of the three proposed projects will become Sweden's next small satellite mission will be decided in the end of 2017.  A link to the news on the SNSB website.
