Night Moves Trace X-ray..                                                                           

Many bright arcs gather in different bright areas, in this image.  You might be surprised: what is being shown?  Air traffic route?  Global information roaming on the Internet?  Looping magnetic field in active areas on the Sun?  In fact, this is a map of the whole sky in X-ray, recorded by NASA’s Neutron Star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER), which is a payload at the International Space Station.  For elementary science goals of NICER, it is necessary to target and track cosmic sources every three minutes orbiting the Earth.  But when the sun comes on the orbit of the night, the NICER team keeps its detectors active, while the payload sleeps from one goal to another, which can be up to eight times in each class.  The data of the first 22 months of NICER’s science operations in the map is  Each arch detects X-rays, as well as attacks with energetic particles, captured during the night movement of NICER.  The brightness of each point in the image, with these contributions, is the result of time spent by NICER in that direction.  An expanding glow crosses X-rays away from bright sources.The major arcs form because the NICER often follows the path  Arcs convert to the brightest places that represent NICER’s most popular destinations – the place of important X-ray sources that the mission regularly monitors.  Mission’s Chief Investigator Keith Gendreu at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt said, “Even with minimal processing, this image reveals signon loop, which is a remnant of about 90 light-years and 5,000 to 8,000 years old.”  Maryland “We are gradually creating a new X-ray image of the whole sky, and it is possible that the sleeves of NICER will reveal the previously unknown sources.”  The primary purpose of the program is to determine the size of the dense residues of dead stars – some of which we see as pulsars – for accuracy of 5%.  These measurements will eventually allow physicists to solve the mystery that what is the form of matter in their incredibly narrow core.  Pulsars, fast moving neutron stars that appear for “Pulse” bright light, ideally suited this “mass-radius” research, and are some of the regular goals of NICER  NICER’s Station Explorer for X-Ray Timing and Navigation Technology (SEXTANT), which is designed to speed up and speed up the NICER, the Pulsar X-ray uses pulses of the exact time.  This is essentially a GALTICTIC GPS system.  Upon maturity, this technology will enable the space shuttle to navigate the entire solar system – and beyond.
