This might look like a painting of a fantasy star scene but it's actually a very real image from three of the world's most advanced space telescopes.
This 'Methuselah star' looks like it is 14.5 billion years old, which is impossible, scientists say.
How did NASA's NuSTAR measure a black hole's spin, solving an astrophysics controversy in the process?
With the help of NASA's brand new NuSTAR observatory, astronomers have measured the spin of a supermassive black hole by detecting the relativistic effects that warp space-time at the edge of its event horizon.
What do you get when you combine a galaxy, its central supermassive black hole and some cool astronomical techniques? ->
