The Ballerina experiment on the Romer mission

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The Romer mission has recently been approved as the next mission within the Danish Small Satellite Program. The scientific payload will consist of two separate experiments, the MONS and the Ballerina payloads. The primary objective of Ballerina is to provide accurate, real-time positions relayed to ground for approximate to 70 Gamma Ray Bursts (GRBs) per year, and to study the temporal and spectral evolution of the early GRB X-ray afterglow. As an additional goal, Ballerina will detect and study bright X-ray transients. in particular X-ray novae and micro-quasar systems. Romer is currently scheduled for launch in late 2003.
