NICER

The Neutron-star Interior Composition ExploreR (NICER) is an X-ray telescope that will launched in August 2016 to be placed on the International Space Station. Its main goal is to observe the patterns of X-ray brightness modulations from spinning neutron stars and use them to measure their radii and constrain the equation of state of cold matter beyond nuclear densities.
