Video: Cosmic X-ray Nanosatellite-2 Selected for NASA Launch

Cosmic X-ray Background Nanosatellite 2, or CXBN-2 has been selected (see 2013 selections) for a NASA launch.

In this brief video from Kentucky Space, Dr. Ben Malphrus, Director of the Space Science Center at Morehead State University, also discusses the fate of CXBN and what was learned from the original flight.

CXBN-2 will complete and improve upon the original science mission - to measure the diffuse X-ray left from the Big Bang.
