BEIJING: China successfully launched on Thursday its first X-ray space telescope to study black holes, pulsars and gamma-ray bursts, state media reported.

A Long March-4B rocket carried the 2.5-tonne telescope into orbit from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwest China’s Gobi Desert at 11:00 am (3:00 GMT), according to the official Xinhua news agency

The Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT), named Insight, will allow Chinese scientists to observe magnetic fields and the interiors of pulsars and better understand the evolution of black holes.

It will also help scientists search for gamma-ray bursts corresponding to gravitational waves and study how to pulsars can be used for spacecraft navigation, Xinhua said.

6月15日早上,中国发射了首个硬X射线调制望远镜卫星“慧眼”。该望远镜一旦入轨,将被用于观测黑洞等高能实体。在中国发展可与美俄匹敌的太空计划的征程中,此举迈出了重要一步。

据报道,这一“硬X射线调制望远镜”(Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope,简称HXMT)由一枚长征四号乙运载火箭从酒泉卫星发射中心发射升空。

报道称,一旦进入轨道,该望远镜将被用于观测诸如黑洞、脉冲星和伽马射线暴等高能实体,以更好地理解它们的能量来源。
