Intrinsic spectra and energetics of BeppoSAX Gamma-Ray Bursts with known redshifts
We present the main results of a study of spectral and energetics properties of twelve gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with redshift estimates. All GRBs in our sample were detected by BeppoSAX in a broadExpand

Discovery of an X-ray afterglow associated with the γ-ray burst of 28 February 1997
Establishing the nature of γ-ray bursts is one of the greatest challenges in high-energy astrophysics. The distribution of these bursts is isotropic across the sky, but inhomogeneous in space, with aExpand

The afterglow, redshift and extreme energetics of the γ-ray burst of 23 January 1999
Long-lived emission, known as afterglow, has now been detected from about a dozen γ-ray bursts. Distance determinations place the bursts at cosmological distances, with redshifts, z, ranging from ∼1Expand

The afterglow, the redshift, and the extreme energetics of the gamma-ray burst 990123
Afterglow, or long-lived emission, has now been detected from about a dozen well-positioned gamma-ray bursts. Distance determinations made by measuring optical emission lines from the host galaxy, orExpand

Discovery of Powerful Gamma-Ray Flares from the Crab Nebula
Gamma-ray observations of the Crab Nebula by two different space telescopes challenge particle acceleration theory. The well-known Crab Nebula is at the center of the SN1054 supernova remnant. ItExpand

Discovery of the X-Ray Afterglow of the Gamma-Ray Burst of February 28 1997
The invention is a three-piece contact assembly for an electrical connector. The contact assembly is characterized by an inner sleeve (10) captivated between a forward outer sleeve (20) and a rearExpand

Neutral Pion Emission from Accelerated Protons in the Supernova Remnant W44
We present the AGILE gamma-ray observations in the energy range 50 MeV-10 GeV of the supernova remnant (SNR) W44, one of the most interesting systems for studying cosmic-ray production. W44 is anExpand

The Cosmic X-Ray Background and the Population of the Most Heavily Obscured AGNs
We report on an accurate measurement of the CXB in the 15-50 keV range performed with the Phoswich Detection System (PDS) instrument aboard the BeppoSAX satellite. We establish that the most likelyExpand

The Gamma-Ray Burst Catalog Obtained with the Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor Aboard BeppoSAX
We report on the catalog of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected with the Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor aboard the BeppoSAX satellite. It includes 1082 GRBs with 40-700 keV fluences in the range from 1.3 ×Expand
