Decay of the X-ray Flux of the May 8, 1997 Gamma-Ray Burst


light curve described below

The plot above shows the rapid decay of the X-ray flux coming from a Gamma Ray Burst event which occurred on May 8 1997. The X-ray intensity from this source decreased almost one million times in less than one week. Courtesy of the BeppoSAX Team, and L. Piro, IAS, CNR, Rome
