(satellite x-ray telescope)

NuSTAR (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array) is a space-based X-ray telescope launched by NASA in 2012 for a 2-year mission to survey Supermassive Black Holes (SMBH).

NuSTAR offers two new capabilities: it focuses the X-rays with a Grating lens, for a much better Signal-To-Noise Ratio (SNR), and it covers high-energy as well as low-energy X-rays.
