NASA’s black-hole hunting telescope has captured a cosmic battle between dark and light. NuSTAR, formally known as the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, has observed a supermassive black hole’s gravity tugging on X-ray light that’s being emitted near that black hole. In this instance, the corona, a source of X-ray light that sits near a black hole, recently collapsed in toward the black hole that’s named Markarian 335. The NuSTAR telescope has been collecting X-rays from black holes and dying stars for the past two years.
