 NASA launches Israel's first space telescope into space

In 2026, NASA will launch the first Israeli space telescope into orbit, which will scan the universe for mergers or star explosions.

The Weizmann Institute of Science reports.< br />
The Ultraviolet Transition Astronomical Satellite (ULTRASAT) will be launched into space aboard a NASA launch vehicle. This mission is a flagship project of the Israel Space Agency and the Weizmann Institute of Science and is part of a partnership between the US Space Organization and the Israeli Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology.

“Satellite will revolutionize the ability of scientists to detect and analyze transient processes in the universe such as neutron star mergers and supernova explosions,” the statement said.

The mission is expected to help in the study of astronomical objects such as supernovae, active galaxies, sources of accretion disks around stars.
