GLOBAL CHARACTERISTICS OF X-RAY FLASHES AND X-RAY-RICH GAMMA-RAY BURSTS OBSERVED BY HETE-2
We describe and discuss the global properties of 45 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) observed by HETE-2 during the first 3 years of its mission, focusing on the properties of X-ray flashes (XRFs) and
Discovery of the short γ-ray burst GRB 050709
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) fall into two classes: short-hard and long-soft bursts. The latter are now known to have X-ray and optical afterglows, to occur at cosmological distances in star-forming
Spectral analysis of 35 GRBs/XRFs observed with HETE-2/FREGATE
We present a spectral analysis of 35 GRBs detected with the HETE-2 gamma-ray detectors (the FREGATE instru- ment) in the energy range 7-400 keV. The GRB sample analyzed is made of GRBs localized with
The Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER): design and development
During 2014 and 2015, NASA's Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) mission proceeded success- fully through Phase C, Design and Development. An X-ray (0.2-12 keV) astrophysics payload
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS ) will search the solar neighborhood for planets transiting bright stars. TESS has been selected by NASA for launch in 2017 as an Astrophysics Explorer
Intrinsic properties of a complete sample of HETE-2 Gamma-ray bursts A measure of the GRB rate in the Local Universe
Aims: Taking advantage of the forthcoming Catalog of the HETE-2 mission, the aim of this paper is to evaluate the main properties of HETE-2 GRBs - the E_peak, the T_90 and the E_iso - in their source
HIGH ENERGY TRANSIENT EXPLORER 2 OBSERVATIONS OF THE EXTREMELY SOFT X-RAY FLASH XRF 020903
We report High Energy Transient Explorer 2 (HETE-2) Wide Field X-Ray Monitor/French Gamma Telescope observations of the X-ray flash XRF 020903. This event was extremely soft: the ratio log(SX/Sγ) =
MITEoR: a scalable interferometer for precision 21 cm cosmology
We report on the MIT Epoch of Reionization (MITEoR) experiment, a pathfinder low-frequency radio interferometer whose goal is to test technologies that improve the calibration precision and reduce
