About Peter Boorman
I'm a postdoc at the Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, studying obscured accretion of supermassive black holes located at the centers of galaxies outside of the Milky Way, known as Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN).
On 2012 June 13th, the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope ARray (NuSTAR) -- a NASA Small Explorer mission -- was launched into a near-Earth orbit, providing the first satellite X-ray observatory capable of focussing high-energy X-rays.
