Facinating and the NuSTAR looks like something out of a science fiction movie.
After launching into orbit on a small rocket, the NuSTAR telescope extends to achieve a 10-meter focal length. The observatory will provide a combination of sensitivity, spatial, and spectral resolution factors of 10 to 100 improved over previous missions that have operated at these X-ray energies.

It is an image of the X-Rays. There-for false color. You can't see X-Rays with equipment to turn it into a picture. Which you can say, "Bright Orange is high energy. Black is devoid of energy." This is so we as humans can 'see' the energy difference. AKA: The most X-ray emitting area.
