The LEXI (Lunar Environment Heliospheric X-ray Imager) instrument will take global images of the interaction of the solar wind and the Earth’s magnetic field. The instrument will be deployed and operate from the lunar surface in 2024 through the NASA CLPS program. The project is a multi-institute collaboration between Boston University, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Johns Hopkins UniversityUniversity of Miami, University of Kansas, and the University of Leicester in the UK.

For more information on the LEXI project details are in the mission paper (Walsh et al., 2024) or contact us.
