Pulse phase variations of the X-ray spectral features in the radio-quiet neutron star 1E 1207-5209
We present the results of an XMM-Newton observation of the radio-quiet X-ray pulsar 1E 1207� 5209 located at the center of the shell-like supernova remnant G296.5+10.0. The X-ray spectrum is
Chandra Discovery of a Tree in the X-Ray Forest toward PKS 2155–304: The Local Filament?
We present the first X-ray detection of resonant absorption from warm/hot local gas either in our Galaxy, or in the intergalactic space surrounding our Galaxy, along the line of sight toward the
The Ital-FLAMES survey of the Sagittarius dwarf spheroidal galaxy - I. Chemical abundances of bright RGB stars
We present iron and α element (Mg, Ca, Ti) abundances for a sample of 15 Red Giant Branch stars belonging to the main body of the Sagittarius dwarf Spheroidal galaxy. Abundances have been obtained
The Sgr dSph hosts a metal-rich population
We report on abundances of O, Mg, Si, Ca and Fe for 10 giants in the Sgr dwarf spheroidal derived from high resolution spectra obtained with UVES at the 8.2 m Kueyen-VLT telescope. The iron abundance
BeppoSAX view of radio-loud active galactic nuclei
A systematic analysis of a large sample of radio-loud active galactic nuclei (AGNs) available in the BeppoSAX public archive has been performed. The sample includes 3 narrow-line radio galaxies
Testing Comptonisation models using BeppoSAX observations of Seyfert 1 galaxies
We have used realistic Comptonization models to fit high quality BeppoSAX data of 6 Seyfert galaxies. Our main effort was to adopt a Comptonization model taking into account the anisotropy of the
Cluster-formation in the Rosette molecular cloud at the junctions of filaments
For many years feedback processes generated by OB-stars in molecular clouds, including expanding ionization fronts, stellar winds, or UV-radiation, have been proposed to trigger subsequent star
First results from the Herschel Gould Belt Survey in Taurus
The whole of the Taurus region (a total area of 52 deg2) has been observed by the Herschel Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (SPIRE) and Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS)
The INTEGRAL IBIS/ISGRI System Point Spread Function and source location accuracy
The imager on board INTEGRAL (IBIS) presently provides the most detailed sky images ever obtained at energies above 30 keV. The telescope is based on a coded aperture imaging system which allows to
The broadband spectral distributions of non-thermal sources, such as those of several known blazars, are well described by a log-parabolic fit. The second-degree term in these fits measures the
