GRBAlpha detected the second gamma ray burst

CubeSat GBRAlpha, launched by our colleague Norbert Werner and his team, detects the second gamma-ray burst. Thanks to the Nordic Optical Telescope, we also know the redshift of the burst, which was emitted 10 billion years ago. The Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory Team determined the exact coordinates of the burst in the Aquila constellation.
