CubeSats trained to monitor specific frequencies could allow scientists to make new breakthroughs in their understanding of the "hot bubble" of X-ray energy that surrounds our solar system.

Working together, groups of CubeSats could observe elusive targets like the extremely low-frequency energy of far-away galactic nuclei and black holes and high-energy UV emissions from young star-forming regions of space.

By focusing on narrow bands of the electromagnetic spectrum and working in groups, CubeSats could help fill in some of the gaps in our understanding of the universe that scientists haven't yet had the ability to explore.
