  • Chandra X-Ray Observatory Observes Eta Carinae Star System (27 Aug 2014)
    As one of the first objects observed by Chandra after its launch some 15 years ago, this double star system continues to reveal new clues about its nature through the X-rays it generates. Hamaguchi et al. (2014, ApJ, 784, 125) discuss the X-ray minimum coincident with the last periastron in 2009: the same team has been obtaining new Chandra data of the current Eta Car periastron/X-ray minimum.
