Latest XMM-Newton Stories
ESA's XMM-Newton orbiting X-ray telescope has uncovered a celestial Rosetta stone: the first close-up of a white dwarf star, circling a companion star, that could explode into a particular kind of supernova in a few million years.
An enormous eruption has found its way to Earth after traveling for many thousands of years across space.
The European Space Agency says data from its XMM-Newton space observatory has allowed astronomers to closely study a supermassive black hole. The black hole is located at the core of a distant active galaxy known as 1H0707-495.
Using new data from ESAâ€™s XMM-Newton spaceborne observatory, astronomers have probed closer than ever to a supermassive black hole lying deep at the core of a distant active galaxy.
ESAâ€™s space-borne X-ray observatory, XMM-Newton, has carried out an exclusive observation of the galaxy Messier 82, for the â€˜100 Hours of Astronomyâ€™ cornerstone project for the International Year of Astronomy 2009.
On 3 April, ESA astronomers will take part in â€˜Around the world in 80 telescopesâ€™, a unique live webcast which will be part of the â€˜100 Hours of Astronomyâ€™ cornerstone project for the International Year of Astronomy 2009.
XMM-Newton has caught the fading glow of a tiny celestial object, revealing its rotation rate for the first time.
X-ray and gamma-ray data from ESAâ€™s XMM-Newton and Integral orbiting observatories has been used to test, for the first time, the physical processes that make magnetars, an atypical class of neutron stars, shine in X-rays.
Different wavelengths of light swirl together like watercolors in a new, ethereal portrait of a bright, active star-forming region.
XMM-Newton has uncovered a well-tuned periodic signal from a super-massive black hole lodged at the centre of a galaxy, ending a long quest for such an object.
