US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — NASA scientists use various types of telescopes to search for and study supernovae. Some telescopes are used to observe visible light from an explosion. Others record data from x-rays and gamma rays, which also come from supernovae. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra X-ray Observatory receive images of supernovae.

In June 2012, NASA launched the first orbital telescope, fixing the hard X-ray range (7-80 keV). The NuSTAR mission has a series of tasks to complete. He is looking for collapsing stars and black holes. He is also looking for remnants of supernovae. Scientists hope to learn more about how stars explode and what elements are created by supernovae.
