NuSTAR is a NASA Small Explorer (SMEX) mission that, when launched in 2012, was the first space telescope capable of focusing high energy X-rays. This has brought about a golden era of X-ray astronomy, including fundamental advancements in the study of black hole physics, stellar explosions, and some of the highest energy phenomena in the cosmos. In this webinar we will discuss the fundamentals of X-ray astronomy, how a small mission like NuSTAR works, and highlight some of the key science results from NuSTAR’s first decade of operation.
