Wellcome to the ASIM/MXGS spanish team web site.
The Atmospheric-Space Interaction Monitor (ASIM) is an international space mission for the International Space Station external facilities on the Columbus module. The aim of ASIM is to study of high-altitude optical emissions from the stratosphere and mesosphere (the so-called red sprites, blue jets, and elves, in general,Transient Luminous Events, TLEs) and the high energy emission (x-rays and gamma-rays) associated to big thundrestorms.
MXGS (Monitor X-ray and Gamma-ray Sensor) is the high energy detector and imaging system for ASIM.
MXGS is developed by the University of Valencia (Spain), the University of Bergen (Norway) and NSI/DTU (Denmark).
