Astronomy Science ~ A NASA space telescope designed to peek far black hole have taken amazing pictures of the sun, which shows that the telescope is sensitive to X-rays, can probe the mystery within our own Earth.

New images taken by NASA spacecraft NuSTAR (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array), is the best view of the X-ray energy ever taken of the sun, NASA officials said. Photos and others taken by NuSTAR in the future, should help researchers learn more about our star.

"NuSTAR will give us a unique view of the Sun" said NuSTAR team member David Smith, from the University of California, Santa Cruz. The new image, which was released Monday, is the layered images are made based on observation NuSTAR (shown in blue and green) to the image of the sun captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

The first images of the sun captured by NASA Nuclear Spectroscopy Telescope Array (NuSTAR), which are sensitive to high-energy X-rays. X-rays seen by NuSTAR appear in green and blue in the photo, which is superimposed with the image taken by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory.

NuSTAR launched in June 2012, which has a primary mission to study black holes and x-ray light source other that much. But scientists have suggested using the spacecraft to see the sun a few years before dropping to the ground. (The sun is too bright for most telescopes to see in visible light, high-energy X-rays coming out of the sun is not strong enough to damage the detector NuSTAR, the researchers said.)

"At first, I thought the whole idea was crazy," said the head of the investigation NuSTAR, Fiona Harrison of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. "Why should we have a telescope high-energy X-ray of the most sensitive ever built, designed to peer deep into the universe, but it is used to see something in our own backyard?"

Harrison finally accept this idea, after realizing that NuSTAR can help solve some long-standing mystery of sun as "coronal heating problem." The solar corona, or outer atmosphere so much hotter than the surface of the Sun with a temperature of 1.8 million degrees Fahrenheit (1 million degrees Celsius) compared with surface has a temperature of 10,800 F (6,000 C).

One possible explanation is "nanoflares" helping to raise the temperature of the corona (along with normal flares are much bigger and easily observed). NuSTAR may be the only tool that is able to detect this hypothesized vague phenomenon.

"NuSTAR will be very sensitive to Stringed-X- activities that occur in the solar atmosphere, and that includes the possibility nanoflares," said Smith. Solar images taken by spacecraft will be better over the next few years, as solar activity decreased, he added. (The sun is currently near the top of the current 11-year cycle of activity, which is known as Solar Cycle 24.)

Observations were carried out sun NuSTAR will also reveal more about the nature of dark matter, the mysterious material which is expected to occupy most of the matter in the universe. Dark matter does not emit or absorb light - so-called dark - and no one knows for sure what the material is made of. A number of exotic particles have been suggested as a constituent of dark matter, including weakly interacting massive particles, sterile neutrinos and axions.
