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).
- NASA's Swift Satellite Marks 10 Years of Game-changing Astrophysics (20 Nov 2014)
Over the past decade, NASA's Swift Gamma-ray Burst Explorer has proven itself to be one of the most versatile astrophysics missions ever flown. It remains the only satellite capable of precisely locating gamma-ray bursts -- the universe's most powerful explosions -- and monitoring them across a broad range of wavelengths using multiple instruments before they fade from view.
- NASA's Swift Mission Probes an Exotic Object: 'Kicked' Black Hole or Mega Star? (19 Nov 2014)
An international team of researchers analyzing decades of observations from many facilities, including NASA's Swift satellite, has discovered an unusual source of light in a galaxy some 90 million light-years away.
- Revised Bologna Catalog of Clusters and Candidates in M31 (V. 5) (18 Nov 2014)
The RBC catalog of over 2000 confirmed and/or suspected globular
clusters in the M31 Galaxy (from
et al. 2009, A&A, 508, 1285 and previous papers) is
now available in Browse
- NuSTAR Guest Observer AO1 Deadline Is Near (14 Nov 2014)
The deadline for NuSTAR proposal submission is
4:30 pm EST on November 25th .
- IceCube & 3 NASA X-ray Telescopes Find Sgr A* May Be a Neutrino Factory (14 Nov 2014)
Based on an analysis of data from the IceCube Neutrino
Swift & NuSTAR, Bai
et al. (2014, Phys. Rev. D, 90, 063012)
have discovered that the giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way may
be producing neutrinos. If confirmed, this would be the first time neutrinos
have been traced back to a black hole.
- Swift CALDB Data updated (12 Nov 2014)
The Swift Caldb has been updated for the SC (update version 20141107)...
