The Telescope That Revealed the X-Ray Universe

From SciShow Space.

Some of the most exciting phenomena in space can’t be seen from Earth because our atmosphere soaks up high-energy light. That’s why NASA built Chandra, the most powerful X-ray telescope ever launched, and the observatory has helped scientists make major discoveries about high-energy events in space, including the processes surrounding the birth and death of stars!
