THE FIRST ACCURATE PARALLAX DISTANCE TO A BLACK HOLE
Using astrometric VLBI observations, we have determined the parallax of the black hole X-ray binary V404 Cyg to be 0.418 ± 0.024 mas, corresponding to a distance of 2.39 ± 0.14 kpc, significantly
Diffuse X-Ray Emission in a Deep Chandra Image of the Galactic Center
We examine the spectrum of diffuse emission detected in the 17' ? 17' field around Sgr A* during 625 ks of Chandra observations. The spectrum exhibits He-like and H-like lines from Si, S, Ar, Ca, and
Evolved Galaxies at z > 1.5 from the Gemini Deep Deep Survey: The Formation Epoch of Massive Stellar Systems
We present spectroscopic evidence from the Gemini Deep Deep Survey for a significant population of color-selected red galaxies at 1.3 1.5 old galaxies have a sky density greater than 0.1 arcmin-2.
Discovery of two high-magnetic-field radio pulsars
We report the discovery of two young isolated radio pulsars with very high inferred magnetic —elds. PSR J1119(6127 has period P \ 0.407 s, and the largest period derivative known among radio pulsars,
A long hard look at MCG–6-30-15 with XMM-Newton
We present the first results from a 325-ks observation of the Seyfert 1 galaxy MCG–6-30-15 with XMM-Newton and BeppoSAX. The strong, broad, skewed iron line is clearly detected and is well
A Long, Hard Look at the Low/Hard State in Accreting Black Holes
We present the first results of coordinated multiwavelength observations of the Galactic black hole GX 339-4 in a canonical low/hard state, obtained during its 2004 outburst. XMM-Newton observed the
The evolution of the timing properties of the black-hole transient GX 339-4 during its 2002/2003 outburst
We present the results of the timing and color analysis of more than two hundred RXTE/PCA observations of the bright black-hole transient GX 339-4 obtained during its 2002/2003 outburst. The
IMPROVED SPECTROSCOPIC PARAMETERS FOR TRANSITING PLANET HOSTS
We report homogeneous spectroscopic determinations of the effective temperature, metallicity, and projected rotational velocity for the host stars of 56 transiting planets. Our analysis is based
XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer Observations of Discrete Soft-X-ray Emission Features from NGC 1068
We present the first high-resolution, soft X-ray spectrum of the prototypical Seyfert 2 galaxy, NGC 1068. This spectrum was obtained with the XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer (RGS).
A Prominent Accretion Disk in the Low-Hard State of the Black Hole Candidate SWIFT J1753.5-0127
We report on simultaneous XMM-Newton and RXTE observations of the stellar mass black hole candidate SWIFT J1753.5-0127. The source was observed in the low-hard state, during the decline of a hard
