Using data from NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite, an international team has uncovered a dozen instances where X-ray signals from active galaxies dimmed as a result of a cloud of gas moving across our line of sight.
Washington, Mar 10 ( ANI ): NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) has captured the month-long fusillade of a unique neutron star near the centre of our galaxy erupting with hundreds of X-ray bursts, that were powered by a barrage of thermonuclear explosions its surface, in extreme detail.
Using data from NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite, Mikhail Revnivtsev (Space Research Institute, Russia) and four colleagues appear to have solved the long-standing mystery of what produces the diffuse glow of X-ray emission that permeates our galaxy.
In December 2004, spacecraft including NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer detected the brightest X-ray flash ever seen from beyond the solar system (SN: 2/26/05, p.
They studied nearly 90 hours of archival observations of Scorpius X-1 taken over seven years with NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE).
But in a recent survey of 11 pulsars, NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer satellite found that none reached such speeds.
Using X-ray data from Chandra, the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer, and the Advanced Satellite for Cosmology and Astrophysics, the team was able to determine the spin of Cygnus X-1 with unprecedented accuracy, showing that the black hole is spinning at very close to its maximum rate.
In the July 20th Nature, Sokoloski and three colleagues report observations made with NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer.
JET SPOTTING Observations of the jet-emitting black hole began in 1998, when the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (XTE) spacecraft detected an X-ray flare from this stellar system.
In every neutron-star binary, the team detected powerful, sporadic X-ray bursts in archival data taken with NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer satellite.
The team then gathered data from three other sensitive X-ray and gamma ray observatories currently in orbit - NASA's Swift and Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer, or RXTE, and the European Space Agency's International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory, or INTEGRAL.
For example, recent observations by Philip Kaaret (University of Iowa) and two colleagues with NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer satellite indicate that M82 X-1 has an evolved companion star on a 62-day orbit.
