The High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center (HEASARC) is the
primary archive for NASA's (and other space agencies') missions studying
electromagnetic radiation from
extremely energetic cosmic phenomena ranging from
black holes to the Big Bang. Since its
merger with the Legacy Archive for Microwave Background Data Analysis (LAMBDA) in 2008, the HEASARC
archive contains not only data
obtained by high-energy astronomy missions observing in the
extreme-ultraviolet (EUV), X-ray, and gamma-ray bands, but also data from
space missions, balloons, and ground-based facilities that have studied the
relic cosmic microwave background (CMB).

- Einstein Postdoctoral Fellowship Program Now Accepting On-Line
Applications (17 Sep 2014)
The 2015 Call for Proposals for new Einstein Fellows has been
posted. These appointments are expected to begin on or about Sep 1, 2015. This
CfP provides an opportunity for highly qualified, recent post-doctoral
scientists to conduct independent research that is broadly related to the
science goals of the NASA
Physics of the Cosmos program.
The deadline for applications is Nov 6, 2014 at 5:00pm EST.
- The Pulse of a Dead Star Powers Intense Gamma Rays (16 Sep 2014)
When the most massive stars explode as supernovae, they don't fade
into the night, but sometimes glow ferociously with high-energy gamma rays.
What powers these energetic stellar remains? NuSTAR is helping to untangle the
[What is this?]
