The Science of NuSTAR – 10 years of Exploring the Energetic Universe

NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) turned 10 this year. Launched on June 13, 2012, this space telescope has opened our eyes to the energetic universe over the last decade. As the first space telescope capable of taking focused high energy X-ray observations, NuSTAR has provided an unprecedented view of high energy objects, such as remnants of stellar explosions, black holes and neutron stars, as well as the monster black holes that live in the centers of galaxies. In this lecture I will talk about how X-ray observations provide unique information on the universe, and discuss highlights from NuSTAR’s decade on orbit.
