Welcome to RaPTeX
RaPTeX – Radiologic Particle Telescope eXperiment!
We are a team consisting of 13 students from UiT – The Arctic University of Norway, who is designing a payload that is going to be sent up in a rocket in march 2021 on the REXUS/BEXUS programme!
The RaPTeX team is participating in the REXUS 29/30 project of the REXUS/BEXUS programme. The RaPTeX experiment will fly on REXUS 29.
The REXUS/BEXUS programme is realized under a bilateral Agency Agreement between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Swedish National Space Agency (SNSA). The Swedish share of the payload has been made available to students from other European countries through the collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA). Experts from DLR, SSC, ZARM and ESA provide technical support to the student teams throughout the project. EuroLaunch, the cooperation between the Esrange Space Center of SSC and the Mobile Rocket Base (MORABA) of DLR, is responsible for the campaign management and operations of the launch vehicles.
