POLAR Team, including R. Marcinkowski from RADEC GmbH, published interpretation of the data taken


during detection of five GRBs (Gamma Ray Bursts) in the journal Nature Astronomy. The results  show that gamma-ray bursts have a relatively low degree of polarization. Analysis gave also indications of a change in


the polarization angle – that is, the orientation of this slight polarization – over the course of individual gamma-ray bursts. RADEC GmbH is proud to take part of this successful space instrument.
