NuSTAR Bringing the High Energy Universe into Focus


First Light Poster


NuSTAR saw first light on June 28th, 2012, observing the Galactic black-hole Cygnus X-1. This poster commemorates that event and was signed by the NuSTAR scientists working at University of California, Berkeley (UCB). UCB also hosts the Mission Operations Center, from which the launch and in-orbit check-out was coordinated.
