India’s first mission to the Moon, experts from Aberystwyth University have contributed a sophisticated X-ray camera – due to play an integral part of the maiden voyage.
The camera, called C1XS, was designed and built at the STFC Space Science and Technology Department in the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory at Didcot, Oxfordshire.
Professor Manuel Grande, head of the Solar Systems Physics Group at the Institute of Mathematics and Physics at Aberystwyth, led a two-day meeting of experts working on the project last week before flying out to India.
