Ep #16: NuSTAR and X-Ray Astronomy - Counting Black Holes and Understanding the High-Energy Universe

NASA's NuSTAR mission is looking at the high energy universe to help us understand the nature and distribution of black holes in the galaxy and our universe at large. It is also providing insight into how supernovae create the heavier elements that allow us to exist.

It's not easy though, especially when trying to focus X-Rays. Carol and Tony look closely at how this amazing part of the spectrum is being studied by one of the newest X-Ray Space Telescopes in orbit.
