Fe-Ni Metal in Primitive Chondrites: Indicators of Classification and Metamorphic Conditions
METAMORPHIC CONDITIONS. M. Kimura, J. N. Grossman, and M. K. Weisberg, Faculty of Science, Ibaraki University, Mito 310-8512, Japan, makotoki@mx.ibaraki.ac.jp, US Geological Survey, 954 NationalExpand
Suzaku Observations of the Diffuse X-Ray Emission across the Fermi Bubbles' Edges
We present Suzaku X-ray observations along two edge regions of the Fermi Bubbles, with eight 20 ks pointings across the northern part of the North Polar Spur (NPS) surrounding the north bubble andExpand
Incipient Space Weathering Observed on the Surface of Itokawa Dust Particles
Evidence of space weathering on particles returned from the S-type asteroid 25143 Itokawa by the Hayabusa spacecraft is reported and texture suggests formation by metamictization and in situ reduction of Fe2+. Expand
Solid-state Slit Camera (SSC) on Board MAXI
Solid-state Slit Camera (SSC) is an X-ray camera onboard the MAXI mission of the International Space Station. Two sets of SSC sensors view X-ray sky using charge-coupled devices (CCDs) inExpand
Infrared Spectroscopy of 15 Radio Galaxies at 2 < z < 2.6
Near-infrared spectra of 15 high-redshift radio galaxies (HzRGs) located at 2 < z < 2.6 were obtained by the OH Airglow Suppressor spectrograph mounted on the Subaru telescope. The UV-optical lineExpand
Forward Shock Proper Motions of Kepler’s Supernova Remnant
The X-ray structure of Kepler's supernova remnant shows a rounded shape delineated by forward shocks. We measure proper motions of the forward shocks on overall rims of the remnant, by using archivalExpand
Revisit of Local X-Ray Luminosity Function of Active Galactic Nuclei with the MAXI Extragalactic Survey
We construct a new X-ray (2--10 keV) luminosity function of Compton-thin active galactic nuclei (AGNs) in the local universe, using the first MAXI/GSC source catalog surveyed in the 4--10 keV band.Expand
Chandra Observations of the Northeastern Rim of the Cygnus Loop
We present results from spatially resolved spectral analyses of the northeastern (NE) rim of the Cygnus Loop supernova remnant (SNR) based on two Chandra observations. One pointing includes northernExpand
The ASTRO-H X-ray astronomy satellite
The joint JAXA/NASA ASTRO-H mission is the sixth in a series of highly successful X-ray missions developed by the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS), with a planned launch in 2015.Expand
Is the Cygnus Superbubble a Hypernova Remnant
We present here an observation of the Cygnus Superbubble (CSB) using the Solid-state slit camera (SSC) aboard the Monitor of All-sky X-ray Image (MAXI). The CSB is a large diffuse structure in theExpand
