HETE-2 ANIMATION - HETE-2 will be launched from the Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific Ocean and once in orbit, will keep an eye open and search the Universe for powerful, mysterious cosmic explosions calls gamma ray bursts (GRBs). HETE's technology will detect the GRBs and then immediately distribute their astronomical coordinates to interested ground-based observers making it possible to view and collect data on the brief phenomenon.
