NICER is a mission aboard the International Space Station whose mission is to make the Size of neutron stars to determine – the dense remnants of dead stars. It maps cosmic sources every time the space station orbits the planet Earth (every 94 minutes). This picture shows the nocturnal activities of NICER.
It is to be hoped that, with the extensive map, NASA will someday be able to better navigate the solar system and possibly discover previously unknown sources.
