NASA and the Carnegie Institution of Science (CIS) have developed a spacecraft that could send a small telescope around the edge of the solar system to observe the icy moon Io.
This will be the first time that a spacecraft has been sent around the edges of the sun’s atmosphere to observe Io and its satellites.
Io has a rocky surface with a thin atmosphere, making it ideal for sending small telescopes around.
The team of scientists working on the spacecraft, which has been described as a “probe and find mission”, have been collaborating on the mission for almost a decade.
The spacecraft will be built by Lockheed Martin, which builds large spacecraft like the Mars Pathfinder.
It is expected to launch in 2019.
The spacecraft, named X-band Radioisotope Thermal Emission and Neutral Reactions (X-band R&R), was designed to fly within 10km of Io and study the composition of the moon’s atmosphere.
The aim is to see whether or not there is enough water on the surface to sustain life.
The researchers hope that their observations will help them understand what happens to the atmosphere of Io after it leaves the sun and eventually goes into hibernation.
The mission has been designed to take about a year and a half to complete, and the spacecraft will orbit Jupiter and its moons, including Io.
The goal is to use X-bands to gather data that will enable scientists to better understand the atmosphere on Io and other icy bodies in the solar neighborhood.
It will be sent into orbit around Io on November 30, 2020.
The X-Band mission is being funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE), with funding from NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and other international sources.
The US has already sent a spacecraft to orbit the moon, but the mission was cancelled because of budget constraints.
The NASA/ESA X-M2 mission, which is about the same size and launched in 2013, was the first to orbit an asteroid.
X-spectroscopy is a technique that allows scientists to study the light emitted by tiny objects, which can be used to understand how the planets and moons formed and the evolution of their atmospheres.
The scientists hope that the X-Radioisotopes will be able to observe this process in detail and help them to understand the origins of life on Earth.
