Integral reveals new class of 'supergiant' X-ray binary stars
ESA's Integral gamma-ray observatory has discovered a new, highly populated class of X-ray fast 'transient' binary stars, undetected in previous observations. View News Article (2005-11-17)

Gamma-ray birth cries suggest massive magnetic engines
Several times a week, astronomers detect the violent death cry of a massive star — an extraordinarily energetic release of gamma rays that takes place in just a matter of seconds to minutes, called a gamma-ray burst (GRB). View News Article (2007-03-09)

ESA's XMM-Newton gains deep insights into the distant Universe
Using XMM-Newton, astronomers have obtained the world's deepest 'wide screen' X-ray image of the cosmos to date. Their observations show newly discovered clusters of galaxies and provide insights into the structure of the distant Universe" Unlike grains of sand on a beach, matter is not uniformly spread throughout the Universe. Instead, it is concentrated into galaxies like our own which... View News Article (2003-07-14)

Black holes, galaxies young and old visible in massive mapping of the night sky
Color images documenting the past 10 billion years of galactic evolution were distributed online this week as part of the first public release of data from a massive project to map a distant region of the universe that combines the efforts of nearly 100 researchers from around the world, including the University of Pittsburgh. View News Article (2007-10-04)

Gamma-ray bursts: are we safe?
For a few seconds every day, Earth is bombarded by gamma rays created by cataclysmic explosions in distant galaxies. Such explosions, similar to supernovae, are known as 'gamma-ray bursts' or GRBs. Astronomers using ESA's X-ray observatory, XMM-Newton, are trying to understand the cause of these extraordinary explosions from the X-rays given out for a day or two after the initial burst....

Fermi Large Area Telescope reveals pulsing gamma-ray sources
Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Space Science Division and a team of international researchers have positively identified cosmic sources of gamma-ray emissions through the discovery of 16 pulsating neutron stars. View News Article (2009-09-10)

Brightest stellar explosion heralds new type of long-distance astronomy
A flash of light that blinded even small telescopes six months ago was the brightest astronomical explosion ever observed - visible to the naked eye despite originating halfway across the universe. View News Article (2008-09-11)

Physicists find evidence for highest energy photons ever detected from Milky Way's equator
Physicists at nearly a dozen research institutions, including New York University, have discovered evidence for very high energy gamma rays emitting from the Milky Way, marking the highest energies ever detected from the galactic equator. View News Article (2005-12-14)

Emergency physician judgment on chest pain patients syncs with their outcomes
Emergency physicians should trust their judgment when evaluating patients who report with chest pain symptoms, said a group of researchers led by Abhinav Chandra, M.D., at Duke University Medical Center. View News Article (2009-08-05)
