NuSTAR Arrives at Vandenberg
NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), enclosed in an environmentally controlled shipping container, is trucked by trailer to processing facility 1555 at Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) in California. The spacecraft arrived after a cross-country trip from Orbital Sciences' manufacturing plant in Dulles, Va. The spacecraft will be offloaded into the processing hangar, joining the Pegasus XL rocket that is set to carry it to space. Credit: NASA.
