Carry a miniaturized soft x-ray imaging telescope.

Description

Carry a miniaturized soft x-ray imaging telescope. Soft x-rays can result from the process of charge exchange and allow one to remotely image the global properties of density in space. cusp plasma imaging detector observatory designed to measure soft X-rays in an attempt to answer fundamental questions related to plasma physics and space weather.
