NuSTAR mate to Its Rocket

NuSTAR will search the newest, densest and most energetic objects in space, counting black holes and the remnants of exploded stars. It will be the primary space telescope to imprison sharp images in high-energy X-rays, giving astronomers a innovative tool for sympathetic the great side of our universe.

NuSTAR is a little Explorer mission led by the California Institute of Technology and managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, both in Pasadena, Calif., for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. The spacecraft was build by Orbital Sciences Corporation, Dulles, Va. Its instrument was built by a consortium including Caltech; JPL; Columbia University, New York; NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.; the Danish Technical University in Denmark; the University of California, Berkeley; and ATK Aerospace Systems, Goleta, Calif. 

NuSTAR will be operated by UC Berkeley, with the Italian Space Agency as long as its equatorial ground station located at Malindi, Kenya. The mission's outreach program is based at Sonoma State University, Calif. NASA's Explorer Program is managed by Goddard. JPL is managed by Caltech for NASA.
