Abstract The first detection of copious X-ray flux froma Galactic nova with NuSTAR highlights the capabilities of this satellite for Nova research. This very fast nova was observed 10 days after the observed optical maximum and a luminous X-ray source was observed with about 1.7x10(-11) erg/s and a thermal plasma spectrum peaking at 2.6 keV. We discuss the possible origins of the emission and physical significance for the outburst physics.
