NuSTAR Bringing the High Energy Universe into Focus


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 was then offloaded into the processing hangar, and joined with the Pegasus XL rocket that carried it into space.
