Czech company ADVACAM will participate in NASA’s mission to the
Moon. Its objective is to solve the question of protecting the crew
against the adverse effects of cosmic radiation. ADVACAM’s
detectors will be transported to the Earth’s natural satellite by
Intuitive Machine’s unmanned flight in the first quarter of 2022. The
MiniPIX TPX3 detector is the result of collaboration between the
Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics at the Czech
Technical University in Prague and Switzerland’s CERN. This
technology was also developed in cooperation with the European
Space Agency (ESA) for use in space.
