  • ISS-CREAM for the International Space Station (14 Aug 2017)
    At 12:31 pm EDT today (August 14), a SpaceX Dragon spacecraft was launched from Kennedy Space Center carrying, among many other things, the ISS-CREAM (International Space Station Cosmic Ray Energetics And Mass) payload. This will be attached to the International Space Station and, starting in Fall 2017, will be used to to extend the energy reach of direct measurements of cosmic rays to the highest energy possible to probe their origin, acceleration and propagation. ISS-CREAM is a collaboration of US, Korean, French and Mexican institutions.
  • The S-Band Polarization All-Sky Survey (S-PASS) 2.3-GHz Source Catalog (11 Aug 2017)
    This new catalog of 23,389 2.3-GHz sources detected by the Parkes radio telescope in the entire southern sky except for regions within 10 degrees of the Galactic Plane (from Meyers et al. 2017, PASA, 34, 13) is now available in Browse and Xamin.
  • NASA Selects Proposals to Study Galaxies, Stars, Planets (10 Aug 2017)
    NASA has selected 6 astrophysics Explorers Program proposals for concept studies. The selected proposals comprise 3 Medium-Class Explorers missions and 3 Explorers Missions of Opportunity, and include Arcus, a MidEx mission that would study stars, galaxies and clusters of galaxies using high-resolution X-ray spectroscopy, the Transient Astrophysics Observer on the ISS MoO, a wide-field X-ray transient detector that would observe numerous such events per year related to compact objects, e.g., GW counterparts, X-ray bursts, GRBs, etc., and the Compton Spectrometer and Imager Explorer (COSI-X), a balloon-borne, wide-FOV telescope designed to survey the gamma-ray sky at 0.2-5 MeV, performing high-resolution spectroscopy, wide-field imaging, and polarization measurements.
