NuSTAR space telescope utilizes thermal control coating developed by Surface Optics Corp.

An artist’s concept of the NuSTAR observatory in orbit. NASA’s space-based telescope consists of two identical high-energy X-ray optical units, which focus the light (right); two shielded detectors, which record the images (left); and a 10-meter deployable mast that provides the requisite focal length for an X-ray telescope.
