September 21 2012 marks 100 days since NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, called NuSTAR, launched into space from the L-1011 "Stargazer" aircraft. NuSTAR has the longest mast of any astronomical telescope ever launched (33-foot/10-meter) flexible structure is part of the mission's innovative design, allowing NuSTAR to focus high-energy X-rays. The telescope has been busy making its first observations of black holes, super-dense dead stars and the glowing remains of exploded stars, teaming up with other observatories, including NASA's Chandra and Swift telescopes.
