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 data
obtained by high-energy astronomy missions observing in the
extreme-ultraviolet (EUV), X-ray, and gamma-ray bands, as well as data from
space missions, balloons, and ground-based facilities that have studied the
relic cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation in the sub-mm, mm and

- Swift Cycle 12 GI Program (29 Sep 2015)
NASA received 185 proposals, requesting a total observing time of
15.8 Ms and $6.0M in funds for 1,555 targets. Considering PIs and Co-Is, more
than 600 individual scientists responded to the Swift Cycle 12 call. The Swift
Cycle 12 Peer Review will be held in December to evaluate the merits of
submitted proposals. The results of the Peer Review will be posted in late
