(2011) Discovery of a cyclotron resonance feature in the X-ray spectrum of GX 304-1 with RXTE and Suzaku during outbursts detected by MAXI in 2010.
In April, researchers analyzing RXTE data detected a 10-day burst of X rays from a source near the Milky Way's center.
By processing the measured data from RXTE satellite, the simulation results are verified.
This graph based on RXTE data provides an overview of the changing character of T5X2's X-ray emission during outbursts from Oct.
Swank of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., recently observed the star for several months with RXTE. They found that as the intensity of the X rays rose and fell, so did the frequency of the X-ray oscillations.
"With the unique capabilities of RXTE and the VLBA, we can associate their ejection with changes that likely signaled the start of the process."
The Japanese MAXI package (Monitor of All-Sky X-ray Image) is designed to supersede the All-Sky Monitor on NASA's aging Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) as an early-warning system for the high-energy sky.
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.
In 90 hours of archival data from NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite, the bright X-ray source Scorpius X-1 exhibited 58 random dips in brightness lasting just a few milliseconds.
Washington, Aug 18 (ANI): NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) has found the first fast X-ray pulsar to be eclipsed by its companion star.
