  • We report the results of the \chandra observations of the \swift-discovered short Gamma-Ray Burst GRB 050724. \chandra observed this burst twice, about two days after the burst and a second time three weeks later. The first \chandra pointing occurred at the end of a strong late-time flare. About 150 photons were detected during this 49.3 ks observation in the 0.4-10.0 keV range. The spectral fit is in good agreement with spectral analysis of earlier \swift XRT data. In the second \chandra… CONTINUE READING
