Italy is the protagonist tonight on the NASA website, for the presentation of the mission of the Ixpe satellite (Imaging X-Polarimetry Explorer), in view of the launch scheduled for Thursday 9 December.

The satellite, designed to open a new 'window' on the cosmos, is the result of the collaboration between the American space agency and our country through the Italian Space Agency (ASI), the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (Infn) and the 'National Institute of Astrophysics (Inaf).

Luca Baldini, co-head of Ixpe for Infn, and Barbara Cavazzuti, program manager of the Italian component of the mission for ASI will participate in the live broadcast, which will begin at 7 pm Italian time.

The Ixpe mission will be entirely dedicated to the study of the polarization of light emitted by extreme astronomical sources, such as pulsars, black holes and supernova remnants, and will allow us to better understand the characteristics and emission mechanisms of these celestial bodies.
