Fig. The spiral galaxy NGC may resemble our Milky Way if it would be observed from ‘above’ (face-on). This image, observed with the VLT, has a size of , corresponding to a linear size of. In this book we meet the pioneers and the telescopes that were built around their ideas. This book looks at space telescopes not simply chronologically but also in order of the electromagnetic spectrum, making it possible to understand better why they were made.

As a result of a major advance in understanding of detector response and background accurate analysis of the data has become possible.

Soft X-ray. The Discovery Scalars of the A2 Detectors Based on information from "HEAO-1 A-2 Experiment: The Configuration of the Hard X-ray Detectors" F.E. Marshall The discovery scalars are the eight rates (four from large field of view data and four from small field of view data) accumulated in various combinations of spatial and spectral windows.

A strong, extended source of X-ray emission is observed coincident with the eastern. A gamma-ray spectrometer (GRS) is an instrument for measuring the distribution (or spectrum—see figure) of the intensity of gamma radiation versus the energy of each study and analysis of gamma-ray spectra for scientific and technical use is called gamma spectroscopy, and gamma-ray spectrometers are the instruments which observe and collect such data.

Cosmic rays are high-energy protons and atomic nuclei which move through space at nearly the speed of originate from the sun, from outside of the solar system, and from distant galaxies. Upon impact with the Earth's atmosphere, cosmic rays can produce showers of secondary particles that sometimes reach the from the Fermi Space Telescope () have been interpreted as.

The Diffuse X-ray Spectrometer (DXS) is a Bragg-crystal spectrometer designed to obtain spectra of the diffuse x-ray background in the 83–44 Å (– eV) range, with ∼ 3 Å spectral resolution (10–25 eV), and ∼ 15° angular : W.T. Sanders, R.J. Edgar. Determination of the interior structure of the Sun from observations of its seismic activity.

These results confirmed theoretical models of solar structure throughout most of the Sun to within percent and support the hypothesis that the observed deficit in the number of neutrinos from the Sun arises because they have a non-zero mass. The Lupus Loop and SN were observed by the A-2 low-energy detector proportional counters on the HEAO 1 satellite as part of the all-sky survey.

As a result of a major advance in understanding of detector response and background accurate analysis of the data has become possible.

The A4, Hard X-ray / Low Energy Gamma-ray experiment, aboard HEAO 1, launched Augused sodium iodide (NaI) scintillation counters to cover the energy range from about 20 keV to 10 MeV. Each detector was actively shielded by surrounding CsI scintillators, in active-anti-coincidence, so that an extraneous particle or gamma-ray event.

years have taught us that. In addition to AXAF and GRO, there are several less ambitious missions now approved or under study. The only approved moderate mission is the X-ray Timing Explorer (XTE).

We have identified two further moderate missions that address science of the highest priority, both of which should be started and launched in this decade.

Proc. SPIEX-Ray and Gamma-Ray Instrumentation for Astronomy XII, pg 11 (25 January ); doi: / The bright source is Sirius B, a white dwarf star that has a surface temperature of ab degrees Celsius which produces very low energy X-rays.

The dim source at the position of Sirius A – a normal star more than twice as massive as the Sun – may be due to ultraviolet radiation from Sirius A leaking through the filter on the detector.

Ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs) are accreting black holes with X-ray luminosi-ties in excess of the Eddington limit for a typical ∼ 10 M⊙ Galactic black hole.

There is an emerging consensus that most ULXs are probably fairly typical stellar remnant black holes in a new super-Eddington ‘ultraluminous’ accretion state, characterised.

During the 20 March flight, a short 18 sec. burst of high energy radiation was observed simultaneously with a class II Solar flare. From the ratio of the Geiger counter rate to the energy loss in the ionization chamber, it was determined this radiation was likely hard X-rays or low-energy gamma rays and not energetic particles.

There were seven detectors in the Goddard [] package: six for ultraviolet and one for visible light (see table ). OAO-B's spectrophotometer was a inch Cassegrain telescope with a Wright-Smith spectrometer; its spectral range was Angstrom, with a resolution of 2A-8AA and a pointing accuracy requirement of 1 arc second.

The first X-ray sky survey, which was sensitive to photon energies below keV (8 A) and potentially able to detect hot WDs, was performed with the low energy detectors of the A-2 experiment aboard the HEAO-1 satellite /5.
