Latest Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array Stories
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.
Wanting to bridge the gap between what is known about exploring stars and the remnants left behind thousands of years later, two University of Texas at Arlington students and their colleagues are trying something new – using SNSPH, a complex computer code developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
NASA has released a pair of new images captured by NuSTAR – one depicting a pair of black holes lurking inside a spiral galaxy, and the other featuring a look at the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A.
NASA's NuSTAR spacecraft has detected the Milky Way's central black hole eating a Thanksgiving snack. Supermassive black holes like the one in the middle of our galaxy sustain themselves by swallowing stars, planets, asteroids, comets and clouds of gas that wander around the galaxy.
NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has spotted its first flare from Milky Way's black hole.
