  • The High Energy Transient Explorer (HETE-2) is a scientific spacecraft that will carry out a multi-wavelength study to determine the origin and nature of cosmic gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The Soft X-ray Camera (SXC) is the new science instrument on board the HETE-2 spacecraft and uses a pair of Charge Coupled Devices (CCDs) to detect incoming X-ray in the 0.5-14 keV energy range. Once in Earth orbit, HETE-2 will encounter micrometeoroids and orbital debris. Micrometeoroids are the smallest… CONTINUE READING
