WASHINGTON, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Astronomers using NASA's Swift satellite and Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope are seeing frequent blasts from a stellar remnant 30,000 light-years away. The high-energy fireworks arise from a rare type of neutron star known as a soft-gamma-ray repeater.
GREENBELT, Md., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Astrophysicist Dr.
The quick turn-around time of the INTEGRAL operation teams has enabled rare high-energy observations of a magnetar.
GREENBELT, Md., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has discovered 12 new gamma-ray-only pulsars and has detected gamma-ray pulses from 18 others. The finds are transforming our understanding of how these stellar cinders work.
An international team of researchers has discovered a puzzling surplus of high-energy electrons bombarding Earth from space.
Scientists believe they may now have a better idea of where to search for dark matter thanks to the results of a giant computer simulation reported on Wednesday.
Gamma-ray bursts are by far the brightest and most powerful explosions in the Universe, second only to the Big Bang itself. So it might seem a bit surprising that a group of them has gone missing.
For decades it was baffling. Out of the still night sky, astronomers peering through their telescopes would occasionally glimpse quick bursts of high-energy light popping off like flashbulbs at the far side of the universe.
