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).
- 5th NuSTAR Public Data Release (23 Oct 2014)
214 new NuSTAR data sets from the first 24 months of observations
were released to the public NuSTAR archive on September 23rd. NuSTAR data are
accessible via the usual HEASARC archive interfaces, i.e.,
by querying the NuSTAR master table (numaster). NuSTAR data can also be
accessed from the HEASARC FTP site.

- Fermi Finds Hints of Starquakes in Magnetar Burst 'Storm' (22 Oct 2014)
Fermi detected a rapid-fire "storm"
of high-energy blasts from the highly magnetized neutron star (magnetar)
SGR J1550-5418 on Jan. 22, 2009. Now Huppenkothen
et al. 2014, ApJ, 787, 128 have discovered underlying
signals related to seismic waves rippling throughout the magnetar.
Such signals were first identified during the fadeout of rare giant flares
produced by magnetars.
- The Million Quasars Catalog (21 Oct 2014)
The latest version (v4.1, 20 October 2014) of the
(Eric Flesch 2009 - 2014) containing more than one million
(1,043,468 to be exact) likely quasars is now available in Browse and
- ROSES-14 Amendment 39: Revised Text and New Due Date for D.6, Fermi Guest Investigator - Cycle 8 (20 Oct 2014)
The changes to the text are the inclusion of joint observations
with INTEGRAL, some clarifications about two-year projects, a larger range for
possible funding levels, and a later due date. Proposals are now due by 4:30
pm Eastern time on January 22, 2015.
- VLA-COSMOS Survey 324-MHz Continuum Source Catalog (20 Oct 2014)
This catalog of the properties of 182 324-MHz radio sources
detected by the Very Large Array in the COSMOS field (from
et al. 2014, MNRAS, 443, 2590) is now available in Browse
