Chandra X-Ray Observatory Observes Eta Carina 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.
