  • HALPERN and Holt1 have recently reported the detection of coherent pulsations with a period of 237 ms from the soft X-ray source 1E0630 +178, which lies in the error box of the γ-ray source known as Geminga (2GC195 + 04). This observation provides compelling evidence that Geminga, an object whose nature has hitherto been mysterious, is an X-ray pulsar. Prompted by this discovery, we have searched the data from EGRET, the Energetic Gamma Ray Experiment Telescope on the Compton Gamma Ray… CONTINUE READING
