Russia and Japan will create an orbital telescope

To study cosmic rays of extragalactic origin, Russia and Japan are going to build a unique telescope. The website of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics of Moscow State University reports that scientists from Roscosmos and the Japanese space agency JAXA have agreed to work together to combine the projects of space telescopes JEM-EUSO and KLPVE (Space Beams of Extremely High Energies).

New generation telescopes will be installed at the International Space Station (ISS). They will fix the luminous tracks that form particles with high energy during entry into the atmosphere.

The main difference in the implementation of the devices is that in JEM-EUSO it is supposed to use lenses to focus the “picture”, and in “KLPVE” the image forms a mirror. In a joint project is supposed to combine both approaches. At the same time, the Japanese side, represented by the RIKEN Institute, will undertake the development and creation of optics and a photosensitive matrix, while the Russian side will ensure the creation of a mirror and other parts of the telescope.
