First results from the LUCID-Timepix spacecraft payload onboard the TechDemoSat-1 satellite in low Earth orbit

Abstract:

The Langton Ultimate Cosmic ray Intensity Detector (LUCID) is a payload onboard the satellite TechDemoSat-1, used to study the radiation environment in Low Earth Orbit (635 km). LUCID operated from 2014 to 2017, collecting over 2.1 million frames of radiation data from its five Timepix detectors on board.
