This new view of the historical supernova remnant Cassiopeia A was taken by NASA's Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR. Blue indicates where NuSTAR has made the first resolved image ever of this source at the highest energy X-ray light, between 10 and 20 kiloelectron volts. Red and green show the lower end of NuSTAR's energy range, which overlaps with NASA's high-resolution Chandra X-ray Observatory. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT Time lapse video of soft gamma-ray repeater J1550-5418 over six days, captured by the Swift space telescope. Swift's X-Ray Telescope (XRT) captured an apparent expanding halo around the flaring neutron star SGR J1550-5418. The halo formed as X-rays from the brightest flares scattered off of intervening dust clouds. The animation shows the glow of the halo pulsing and dispersing over six days in January 2009. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT X-ray Crab Nebula. The Crab Nebula, some 6,000 light years from Earth, is the remnant of a supernova explosion. It was seen on Earth in the year 1054. At the center of the bright nebula is a rapidly spinning neutron star, or pulsar, that emits pulses of radiation 30 times a second. This view shows the Crab in the X-ray wavelength. Sun, 29 Aug 1999 12:00:00 GMT Chandra Million Second Exposure. The Chandra Deep Field South refers to a location in space that offers a relatively clear view through the clouds of gas in our Galaxy, allowing us to clearly see the rest of the Universe in X-rays. This image was created by putting together multiple exposures from Chandra’s Advanced CCD Imaging Spectrometer for a cumulative exposure time of over one-million seconds. The multiwavelength observations of this region were carried out by a team led by Riccardo Giacconi in collaboration with scientists from the Very Large Telescope and the Paranal Observatory, both in Chile. Through the course of these investigations, the X-ray background was determined to originate from the central supermassive black holes of distant galaxies. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT The First Black Hole. Since its discovery in 1962, the X-ray binary star Cygnus X-1 has been one of the most intensively studied cosmic X-ray sources. About a decade after its discovery, Cygnus X-1 secured a place in the history of astronomy when a combination of space-based, X-ray observations by the Chandra X-ray Observatory and optical, ground-based observations by the Digitized Sky Survey led to the conclusion that it was a black hole, the first such identification. This is a Chandra X-ray image of Cygnus X-1. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT GRB 050709. Gamma-ray bursts longer than two seconds are the most common type and are widely thought to be triggered by the collapse of a massive star into a black hole. As matter falls toward the black hole, some of it forms jets in the opposite direction that move near the speed of light. These jets bore through the collapsing star along its rotational axis and produce a blast of gamma rays after they emerge. This artist's rendering depicts a GRB that was discovered on July 9, 2005, by NASA's High-Energy Transient Explorer (HETE). Sat, 09 Jul 2005 12:00:00 GMT GRB 970228 w/X-ray counterpart. Eight hours after the detection of GRB 970228, BeppoSax was able to isolate an X-ray source at the location in the Orion constellation. This is the first X-ray counterpart data captured following a gamma-ray burst. Fri, 28 Feb 1997 12:00:00 GMT HEAO-1 All-Sky X-ray Catalog. Beginning in 1977, NASA launched a series of very large scientific payloads called High Energy Astronomy Observatories (HEAO). The first of these missions, HEAO-1, carried NRL’s Large Area Sky Survey Experiment (LASS), consisting of 7 detectors. It surveyed the X-ray sky almost three times over the 0.2 keV - 10 MeV energy band and provided nearly constant monitoring of X-ray sources near the ecliptic poles. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT M31 from Einstein. This picture taken by the Einstein Observatory points to the galactic center of M31 - the Andromeda Galaxy - the nearest spiral galaxy to our Milky Way galaxy. Using more than 150 observations carried out over 13 years by the Chandra X-ray Observatory, researchers in 2013 identified 26 black hole candidates, the largest number to date, in the Andromeda Galaxy. Thu, 01 Jan 1970 12:00:00 GMT X-ray Moon and X-ray Star. This image of the Moon in X-rays was made in 1991 using data from the Roentgen Satellite (ROSAT), an X-ray observatory. In this picture, pixel brightness corresponds to X-ray intensity. The Moon reflects lower energy X-rays (shown as red) from the Sun. The source of high energy X-rays (shown as yellow) is a distant binary star system. The background is speckled with X-rays from many distant, powerful active galaxies. The picture also shows the Moon passing in front of of and obscuring the binary star, a phenomenon called occultation. Tue, 01 Jan 1991 12:00:00 GMT
