This article explains about the study ofBlack holes with the help of a space observatory called theImaging X-ray Polarimeter Observer (IXPE). It isoriginally designed and constructed by the NASA space mission team and it is planned to be launched by the year 2020 with a life span of 2 years expectancy. The main aim of this space mission is to study thecharacteristics of a black hole. The studying of holes is done by observing the radiation patterns of it and this is done when a star or a planet comes into contact with the black hole and as a result of it is, an enormous amount of energy and radiation being emitted. The observatory is said to be operated at the S-frequency band and Has an inclination of zero degrees. X-rays in the Range of 2-8 Kev are the focus of IXPE.
