We present the Red MSX Source survey, the largest statistically selected catalog of young massive protostars and H II regions to date. We outline the construction of the catalog using mid- and
The mass of the neutron star in Vela X-1 and tidally induced non-radial oscillations in GP Vel
We report new radial velocity observations of GP Vel / HD 77581, the optical companion to the eclipsing X-ray pulsar Vela X-1. Using data spanning more than two complete orbits of the system, we
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
Spectral changes during dipping in low-mass X-ray binaries due to highly-ionized absorbers
X-ray observations have revealed that many microquasars and low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) exhibit narrow absorption features identified with resonant absorption from Fe XXV and Fe XXVI and other
H2 and CO Emission from Disks around T Tauri and Herbig Ae Pre-Main-Sequence Stars and from Debris Disks around Young Stars: Warm and Cold Circumstellar Gas*
We present ISO Short-Wavelength Spectrometer observations of H_2 pure-rotational line emission from the disks around low- and intermediate-mass pre-main-sequence stars as well as from young stars
Accretion funnels onto weakly magnetized young stars
Aims. We re-examine the conditions required to steadily deviate an accretion flow from a circumstellar disc into a magnetospheric funnel flow onto a slow rotating young forming star. Methods. New
Temperature and Entropy Profiles of Nearby Cooling Flow Clusters Observed with XMM-Newton and the Effervescent Heating Model
We investigate temperature and entropy profiles of 13 nearby cooling flow clusters observed with the EPIC cameras of XMM-Newton. When normalized and scaled by the virial radius the temperature
A highly-ionized absorber in the X-ray binary 4U 1323-62: A new explanation for the dipping phenomenon
We report the detection of narrow $\ion{Fe}{xxv}$ and $\ion{Fe}{xxvi}$  X-ray absorption lines at $6.68 \pm 0.04$ keV and $6.97 \pm 0.05$ keV in the persistent emission of the dipping low-mass X-ray
The first ALMA view of IRAS 16293-2422 - Direct detection of infall onto source B and high-resolution kinematics of source A
Aims: In this paper, we focus on the kinematical properties of a proto-binaryto study the infall and rotation of gas towards its two protostellarcomponents. Methods: We present ALMA Science
The origin of crystalline silicates in the Herbig Be star HD 100546 and in comet Hale-Bopp
the date of receipt and acceptance should be inserted later Abstract. We have investigated the spatial distribution, and the properties and chemical composition of the dust orbiting HD100546. This
