    1. Detection of the first extragalactic gamma-ray pulsar

      Publishing date:

      November 19, 2015

      It is the most luminous gamma-ray pulsar ever observed that has been detected by two scientists from LPC2E (Laboratoire de physique et chimie de l'environnement et de l'espace, CNRS/Orleans University) and from IRAP (Institut de recherche en astrophysique et planétologie, CNRS/Université Toulouse III – Paul Sabatier), with their American colleagues from NASA in an international collaboration.

    7. HETE surveys a violent Universe

      Publishing date:

      October 11, 2004

      Astronomers all over the world are holding their breath after the High-Energy Transient Explorer (HETE-2) satellite detected a trio of star explosions in September. The 3 powerful blasts, lasting only a few seconds, were gamma-ray bursts that might be linked to the explosion of a supernova, which could start appearing in the weeks ahead. The astronomy community now has its telescopes trained on the 3 stars…

    8. FERMI reveals millisecond pulsars in a globular cluster

      60 millisecond pulsars in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae: that is what the FERMI observatories concluded when for the first time they showed gamma-ray coming from a globular cluster. Millisecond pulsars are particularly abundant in the globular clusters but for now, radio or X-ray observations could only reveal 23. So for the first time gamma observations allowed scientists to conduct a better census of millisecond pulsars in the globular clusters and thus to better understand the evolution of those mini-galaxies of early ages of the universe. This result was announced in the August 14th, 2009 issue of Science.

      Une équipe de chercheurs, incluant des français, a découvert l'émission gamma de basse énergie (1) en provenance de la supernova de type Ia SN2014J en analysant les observations réalisées par le spectromètre SPI et l'imageur ISGRI/IBIS de l'observatoire spatial INTEGRAL (International Gamma-Ray Laboratory de l'Agence Spatiale Européenne). C'est la 1ere fois qu'un tel rayonnement est observé en provenance de ce type de supernova.
