Heads up! – Proper Posting Imminent!

Hello fellow Astrogeekateres,

Apologies for the rather late, and infrequent postings as I originally promised for this blog. However i’m hoping to change this shortly with my first focus/news post on the NuSTAR, (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array) as it has recently been in the spotlight for presenting it’s first images of a high energy ‘flare-up’ caused by the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Milky Way’s galactic core. As well as presenting a little bit about the flare-up I hope to also talk about the long-life purpose of NuSTAR, what are it’s main questions it hopes to answer for cosmology, what do we hope to gain from the mission as a whole and therefore what potential/further research could be conducted with the instrument? Could having an instrument analysing this narrowband give rise to too many limiting factors for other areas of cosmological study?

NuSTAR is a brilliant mission, analysing high energy physics of the Universe in greater detail than before. Hopefully my attempt of journalism will do the science, and my love of science, physics and astronomy justice :).

See you guys soon with (hopefully) a good post,

TheObAstro
