Title:Unveiling the High Energy X-ray Sky with the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array

Abstract:The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, the first focusing high-energy X-ray telescope in orbit, extends sensitive X-ray observations above the band pass where Chandra and XMM-Newton operate. With an unprecedented combination of sensitivity, spectral and imaging resolution, NuSTAR is advancing our understanding of black holes, neutron stars, and supernova remnants. I will describe the mission and its science program, and present science highlights from the first six months of observations.
