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) radiation in the sub-mm, mm and cm bands.

  • NuSTAR COSMOS Field X-Ray Source Catalog (24 Aug 2015)
    This catalog listing the 3-24 keV properties of 91 sources detected by NuSTAR in 121 observations totalling 3 Ms in a 1.7 sq. deg. region of the COSMOS field, 87 of which have Chandra and/or XMM counterparts (from Civano et al. 2015, ApJ, 808, 185) is now available in Browse and Xamin.
  • X-Raying the Tumultuous Heart of Our Galaxy (24 Aug 2015)
    A new image of powerful remnants of dead stars and their mighty action on the surrounding gas from ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray observatory reveals some of the most intense processes taking place in the central 1.5 degrees of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. Inter alia, newly discovered extended features, such as SNRs, superbubbles and X-ray filaments are reported in this new study by Ponti et al. (2015, MNRAS, 453, 172).
  • Sixth International Fermi Symposium Abstract and Regular Registration Deadline is Near (20 Aug 2015)
    The 6th International Fermi Symposium will be held in Washington, DC from Nov 9-13, 2015. This meeting will focus on the scientific investigations and results enabled by Fermi, the mission and instrument characteristics, future opportunities, and coordinated observations and analyses. The registration and abstract submission deadline is Sep 14, while the late registration deadline is Oct 30.
