Japan's M-5 to examine black holes and galaxies

Posted on Monday, July 11 2005 @ 4:21 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Japan successfully launched the M-5 rocket on Sunday which includes X-ray telescopes to study black holes and galaxies.
JAXA scientists will comb through the data to study the structure and movement of black holes and the collapse of gigantic galaxies, or clusters of stars and gas held together by gravity. They hope the research will reveal clues about the evolution of the universe.
