    Patch 12.9.0p, released July 28, Allows unlinking of an already linked parameter in a Python-coded local model in PyXspec.
  • The South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) and NuSTAR Data (28 Jul 2016)
    The NuSTAR spacecraft flies through regions of the Earth's radiation belts, e.g., the SAA, in parts of its orbit, resulting in an enhanced background in its detectors. The NuSTAR team has some advice about how to analyze data affected by such high backgrounds (which is particularly applicable for fainter X-ray sources) here.
  • Correction to NuSTAR CALDB Update 20160706 (28 Jul 2016)
