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 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 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
