NASA will host a news teleconference at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT) Wednesday, Oct. 8, to announce new findings from its Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) mission. The results describe an unusual source of X-rays that will leave theorists scratching their heads, but also will help astronomers learn more about how black holes and galaxies are formed.
Details of the findings are under embargo by the journal Nature until 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT), Oct. 8.
Participants in the teleconference are:
-- Paul Hertz, director of astrophysics division, NASA Headquarters, Washington
-- Fiona Harrison, NuSTAR principal investigator, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena
-- Matteo Bachetti, astronomer, University of Toulouse, France
-- Jeanette Gladstone, astronomer, University of Alberta, Canada
