CALTECH TO DETECT BLACK HOLES IN OUTER SPACE
NASA has given the go-ahead to restart an astrophysics mission that will provide a greater capability than any existing instrument for using high-energy X-Rays to detect black holes. The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, will expand our ability to understand the origins and to predict the destinies of stars and galaxies.
