Latest Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array Stories
A pair of dazzling images from NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) highlights the observatory's impressive imaging capabilities for objects both near and far.
Black holes are known to either come in masses of only about 10 times that of our sun, or the equivalent in mass of up to 10 billion suns. However, NuSTAR could be finally finding a middle ground.
The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array spacecraft, NASA’s black-hole-hunter, had identified its first 10 supermassive black holes.
For the first time, NASA’s Nuclear Spetroscopic Telescope Array is giving the wider astronomical community a look at its unique X-ray images of the cosmos.
NASA’s NuSTAR orbiting observatory is designed to investigate high-energy events throughout the universe, and the cosmos has been keeping it busy in recent months, producing one event after another.
NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory caught signs of what appeared to be a black hole eating gas at the middle of the nearby Sculptor galaxy nearly a decade ago. A new observation by NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has found the black hole asleep.
Scientists affiliated with NASA’s NuSTAR and XMM-Newton X-ray observatories have now devised a clever way to directly measure the rotation of nearby supermassive black holes.
