The location accuracy of the BeppoSAX Wide Field Cameras and acute ground-based followup have led to the detection of a decaying afterglow in X rays and optical light following the classical gamma-ray burst GRB 970228. The afterglow in X rays and optical light fades as a power law at all wavelengths. This behaviour was predicted for a relativistic blast… CONTINUE READING
