We summarize the results of the late-time Chandra observati ons of the X-ray afterglow of the Swift-discovered GRB 060729. These Chandra observations h ave been the latest X-ray detections of an afterglow, even up to 21 month after the trigger. The las t two Chandra observations in December 2007 and May 2008 suggest a break at about a year afte r the burst, implying a jet halfopening angle of about 14 degrees, if interpreted as a jet bre ak. As an alternative this break may have a spectral… CONTINUE READING
