    NASA NuSTAR Captures Most Sensitive and Stunning Portrait of Our Sun to Date : Space : Science World Report

    NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has captured a stunning, new image of our sun. While the mission was designed to examine black holes and other objects far from our solar system, the new picture represents the most sensitive solar portrait ever taken in high-energy X-rays.

    "NuSTAR will give us a unique look at the sun, from the deepest to the highest parts of its atmosphere," said David Smith, member of the NuSTAR team, in a news release.

    Solar scientists first thought of using NuSTAR to study the sun about seven years ago. Yet it isn't until now that it's been turned toward our sun. The new image actually shows that NuSTAR can gather new data about our sun. In fact, it gives insight into questions about the remarkably high temperatures that are found above sunspots, which are cool, dark patches on the sun.

    Nasa’s NuSTAR probe has taken its first picture of the sun — and the stunning image shows X-rays streaming off the star.

    NuSTAR stands for Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array. It is an X-ray telescope that has been flying around space in Earth’s orbit since 2012.

    The image is the first picture that NuSTAR has taken of the sun, and is the most sensitive solar picture ever taken using high-energy X-rays.

    NASA's latest high-energy astrophysics observatory, NuSTAR, is the first focusing high-energy X-ray mission, opening the hard X-ray sky above 10 keV for sensitive study for the first time. During its mission, NuSTAR will search for black holes, map supernova explosions, and study the most extreme active galaxies.

    NASA: "Milky Way Center is a Bizarre Place --It's a Mystery"

    "We can see a completely new component of the center of our galaxy with NuSTAR's images," said Kerstin Perez of Columbia University in New York, lead author of a new report on the findings in the journal Nature. "We can't definitively explain the X-ray signal yet -- it's a mystery. More work needs to be done."

    Peering into the heart of the Milky Way, NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has spotted a mysterious glow of high-energy X-rays that, according to scientists, could be the "howls" of dead stars as they feed on stellar companions.

    The center of our Milky Way galaxy is bustling with young and old stars, smaller black holes and other varieties of stellar corpses – all swarming around a supermassive black hole called Sagittarius A*. The image above reveals what cannot be seen in visible light: cooler stars (blue), heated dust (reddish hue), and Sgr A* supermassive black hole as bright white spot in the middle.

    NuSTAR, launched into space in 2012, is the first telescope capable of capturing crisp images of this frenzied region in high-energy X-rays. The new images show a region around the supermassive black hole about 40 light-years across. Astronomers were surprised by the pictures, which reveal an unexpected hase of high-energy X-rays dominating the usual stellar activity.
