Chandra X-ray Observatory

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is a space telescope orbiting high above the planet. The telescope looks at the Universe in a type of invisible light called X-ray. X-rays come from very hot objects in Space; like stars that have exploded, gigantic groups of galaxies, and material being gobbled up by black holes.
