Mexico Observatory To Hunt For Gamma Rays In Known Universe
2013-08-22 07:35:15

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new observatory has begun formal operations in Mexico. The High-Altitude Water Cherenkov (HAWC) Gamma Ray Observatory is designed to study the origins of very high-energy cosmic rays and observe the most energetic objects in the known universe. The HAWC uses a unique detection technique that is different from the classical astronomical design of mirrors, lenses, and antennae, making the extraordinary observatory a significant boost...

Image 1 - New Facets Of The Vela Pulsar Wind Nebula
2012-01-26 05:28:55

Astronomers studying the Vela pulsar wind nebula with ESA's INTEGRAL observatory have successfully resolved its morphology in the hard X-ray band, for the first time. This pulsar-powered nebula is the most extended individual source yet observed at these energies. The study exploited a special imaging technique to reveal a new component of the source that likely consists of highly energetic electrons that have escaped from the core of the nebula in the last few thousand years. One of the...

A gamma-ray burst released by the Crab Nebula on April 12 has shocked astronomers, reports BBC News. The Crab Nebula was once thought to be the steadiest high-energy source in the sky. "For 40 years, most astronomers regarded the Crab as a standard candle," Colleen Wilson-Hodge, an astrophysicist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., said in a previous statement posted in January. "Now, for the first time, we're clearly seeing how much our candle flickers," she said....

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope -- able to identify pulsars by gamma-ray emissions -- has provided data for two studies, U.S. officials said. International teams of astronomers say they've analyzed gamma-rays from two dozen pulsars, including 16 discovered by Fermi. A pulsar is the rapidly spinning and highly magnetized core left after a massive star explodes, NASA said. Since the demise of the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory a decade ago, we've wondered about the nature of unidentified...
