Insights into the Phenomenon: NuSTAR and NICER Detect Identical Radio Burst, Unveiling Key Clues

A team of researchers has made a significant breakthrough in understanding fast radio bursts (FRBs) by detecting an FRB within the Milky Way using two NASA X-ray telescopes, the Neutron Star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) and Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR). This observation provided valuable data that allowed scientists to trace the source of the FRB back to a magnetar, an extraordinarily dense object and a type of neutron star. The researchers found that the rotational rate of the magnet

Study of Black Hole Winds by XMM-Newton Offers Valuable Insights into Interactions between Galaxies and Black Holes

A recent study conducted by the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton X-ray observatory has offered valuable insights into the interactions between galaxies and black holes. Black holes, known for their immense gravitational pulls, consume only a fraction of the gas and material in their accretion disks, while the remaining material is ejected into space. In the case of the black hole at the center of the galaxy Markarian 817, XMM-Newton observed a phenomenon known as a “black hole wind,” where

New Insights into Microquasar Jets Revealed by IXPE: Surprising Magnetic Field Structure Discovered

New research conducted using NASA’s Imaging X-ray Polarimetry Explorer (IXPE) observatory has revealed surprising insights into the magnetic field structure of microquasar jets. Microquasars are black holes that devour celestial bodies, creating streams of particles known as jets. These jets can accelerate cosmic rays, but the process behind this acceleration has remained a mystery. The study focused on Stephenson and Sanduleak 433 (SS 433), the first microquasar ever discovered. Using IXPE

Hubble Telescope Enables Observations of Exoplanetary Weather by Scientists

A team of international astronomers has used data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to make a groundbreaking discovery regarding atmospheric variability on an exoplanet called WASP-121 b. This Jupiter-sized exoplanet, located approximately 880 light-years from Earth, has unique characteristics that make it ideal for studying weather patterns on exoplanets. The planet’s close proximity to its host star and its tidally locked nature contribute to its extreme temperatures and intense gravitational forces. The scientists collected a comprehensive data set comprising
