  • NuSTAR Guest Observer AO1 Deadlines Are Near (29 Oct 2014)
    The deadline for requesting project assistance for proposed NuSTAR pointings which have been flagged as having heavily contaminated stray light is November 11th and the deadline for proposal submission is November 25th .
  • Chandra Observatory Identifies Impact of Cosmic Chaos on Star Birth (28 Oct 2014)
    Zhuravleva et al. (2014, Nature, in press) have analyzed the Chandra data for the nearby cool-core clusters of galaxies Persesu and Virgo and conclude that turbulence may be preventing hot gas there from cooling, addressing a long-standing question of why galaxy clusters do not form large numbers of stars.
  • INTEGRAL IBIS AGN Catalog (24 Oct 2014)
    This catalog of the classification and X-ray properties of 272 active galactic nuclei which have been detected by the INTEGRAL IBIS instrument (from Malizia et al. 2012, MNRAS, 476, 1750) is now available in Browse and Xamin.
  • 5th NuSTAR Public Data Release (23 Oct 2014)
    214 new NuSTAR data sets from the first 24 months of observations were released to the public NuSTAR archive on September 23rd. NuSTAR data are accessible via the usual HEASARC archive interfaces, i.e., Xamin and Browse, by querying the NuSTAR master table (numaster). NuSTAR data can also be accessed from the HEASARC FTP site.

  • Fermi Finds Hints of Starquakes in Magnetar Burst 'Storm' (22 Oct 2014)
    Fermi detected a rapid-fire "storm" of high-energy blasts from the highly magnetized neutron star (magnetar) SGR J1550-5418 on Jan. 22, 2009. Now Huppenkothen et al. 2014, ApJ, 787, 128 have discovered underlying signals related to seismic waves rippling throughout the magnetar. Such signals were first identified during the fadeout of rare giant flares produced by magnetars.
