NuSTAR Delivers the X-Ray Goods


www.nasa.gov said:

NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, is giving the wider astronomical community a first look at its unique X-ray images of the cosmos. The first batch of data from the black-hole hunting telescope is publicly available today, Aug. 29, via NASA's High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center, or HEASARC.

"We are pleased to present the world with NuSTAR's first look at the sky in high-energy X-rays with a true focusing telescope," said Fiona Harrison, the mission's principal investigator at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena.

Excellent! Maybe this can help shed some light on many of the mysteries of space and make them not so mysterious any longer. Thanks for the info Waspie. I've only been able to glance over it, about to leave for work but this sounds like something I would be fascinated by. I'll be back! Ha, off to work.
