    NASA is hosting a news teleconference to announce black hole observations from its newest X-ray telescope, the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton X-ray telescope.

    This is obviously big news and has been hinted at for a while. Check it out.

    The briefing participants are:

    -- Fiona Harrison, NuSTAR principal investigator, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif.

    -- Guido Risaliti, astronomer, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Cambridge, Mass., and the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics

    -- Arvind Parmar, head of Astrophysics and Fundamental Physics Missions Division, European Space Agency
