  • 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 Galleti et al. 2009, A&A, 508, 1285 and previous papers) is now available in Browse and Xamin.
  • 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 Observatory, Chandra, 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)...
