The NuSTAR spacecraft of NASA has successfully arrived in space on Wednesday with the help of the Pegasus XL rocket, which had been launched over the central Pacific Ocean, says a recent report.
The California Institute of Technology in Pasadena’s NuSTAR principal investigator Fiona Harrison has told that it is the first high-energy focusing telescope in space.
As per the report, following just 15 minutes of the release, ground controllers had voiced “payload separation”, which almost confirmed the success of its ride.
It has been told that the spacecraft was aboard the rocket, both of which were prepared for being launched at Vandenberg Air Force Base. The preparation was made before the Central Coast departed on June 5 on its way to the tropical locale.
The rocket of Orbital Sciences Corp. had been released beneath the modified L-1011 Stargazer airplane’s belly about 120 miles south of the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands and was launched at around 9 a. m. PDT.
It is being said that the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array would be studying black holes in detail as well as other high-energy objects of the universe. “As such it will be able to make images that are 10 times crisper and 100 times more sensitive than any we’ve had of the cosmos to date”, said Harrison.
