The Chandra X-Ray Observatory is a telescope that detects X-Rays from areas in the universe. These x-rays usually alert scientists to exploded stars and black holes. It orbits above the earth's atmosphere at an altitude of 86,400 miles, and is controlled by scientists at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA.
Launched in November of 2004, the Swift Satellite works to identify gamma ray bursts, which often indicate the creation of a black hole. It takes photographs of the GRBs and their afterglows, and releases the data to the public.
The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope was launched in June of 2011 and observes photons with energy levels thousands to hundreds of billions of times greater than what the unaided eye can see. It was developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy, along with important contributions from academic institutions and partners in France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden and the U.S, and is operated out of Stanford University.
