EnduroSat, the Space Sciences Laboratory at UC Berkeley, and NASA have partnered to launch the PADRE mission, a CubeSat that will study the Sun in hard X-rays. The mission is scheduled to launch in 2025 and will help scientists to better understand solar activity, solar flares, and space weather.
The PADRE science instruments will be hosted on EnduroSat’s 12U satellite, which is one of the highest-performance platforms of the company. The satellite will be spinning at a constant rate while taking measurements, which is a challenging but innovative approach that will allow for more accurate data collection.
The PADRE mission is a significant step forward in our understanding of the Sun and its impact on Earth. It is a testament to the collaboration between academia, industry, and government that this mission is possible.
