  • Chandra CALDB installed at the HEASARC (21 Jul 2017)
    CalDB is now installed and available at the HEASARC. Chandra was released by the CXC on July 20, 2017...
  • NuSTAR CALDB Update (21 Jul 2017)
    The NuSTAR CALibration DataBase was updated on July 21, 2017 (CALDB version 20170720). This updates the NuSTAR clock correction file to version 73, valid through 2017-07-20.
  • Press Release: Astrosat, Chandra, Hubble Simultaneously Detect a Coronal Explosion on the Nearest Planet-Hosting Star (20 Jul 2017)
    Stars like Proxima Centauri are known to flare on timescales of a few minutes to hours. The ongoing analysis of the data for this flare detected on 31 May 2017 suggests that the flux increases by several orders of magnitude in both X-rays and UV and lasts ~1800 seconds. The energy released during this flare is of the order of ~10 30 erg, 100 times the energy of large solar flares.
  • Sloan Digital Sky Survey Quasar Catalog (12th Data Release: DR12Q) (20 July 2017)
    The SDSS DR12Q Catalog listing the X-ray, UV, optical, IR and radio properties of 297,301 quasars, as well as their redshifts, that were identified in the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) of the SDSS-III via visual inspection of their spectra (from Paris et al. 2017, A&A, 597, A79) is now available in Browse and Xamin
  • Gamma-ray Telescopes Reveal a High-energy Trap in Our Galaxy's Center (19 Jul 2017)
    A combined analysis of data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and the High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS), a ground-based observatory in Namibia, suggests the Galactic Center contains a "trap" that concentrates some of the highest-energy cosmic rays, among the fastest particles in the Galaxy. Gaggero et al. (2017) combined low-energy Fermi LAT data with high-energy HESS data of the Galactic Center to create a continuous gamma-ray spectrum describing this emission across a thousand-fold span of energies.
  • NICER First Light (17 Jul 2017)
    NASA's new Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) mission to study the densest observable objects in the universe has begun science operations. To date, NICER has observed over 40 celestial targets to calibrate the X-ray Timing Instrument and supporting star-tracker camera. The observations also validated the payload's performance that will enable its key science measurements.
