From NASA: “NuSTAR in Space”

A neat short video from NASA about this new instrument

NuSTAR will be the very first high energy X ray telescope that can actually focus.That’ll make it make images that are 10 times crisper, sharper than anything that’s been made in this part of the electromagnetic spectrum before.

A whole new window on the high energy Universe — observing objects glowing in radioactivity — phenomena like exploding stars, from very massive black holes to black holes that are about the mass of the sun, to the atmosphere of our own sun.”
