The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) wants to study the Dark Ages of the Universe. For this, the space agency will build a special telescope.
What is known
The device will be called Lunar Surface Electromagnetics Experiment-Night (LuSEE-Night). It will be developed with the support of the United States Department of Energy and will go to the far side of the moon.
The task of LuSEE-Night will be to capture radio signals from the ancient Universe. To do this, he will receive four antennas 3 meters long. Developers must make sure that the apparatus can operate at extreme temperatures and in conditions of high background radiation.
LuSEE-Night will allow scientists to look into the Dark Ages of our universe. This is a period that began about 380,000 years after the Big Bang and lasted until the formation of the first stars and galaxies.
The launch of LuSEE-Night will take place in a few years. It will become part of the Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) initiative under the Artemis lunar program.
