SPHiNX - a proposed satellite GRB polarimeter is selected for study phase
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.
