  • Important insight into the nature of γ-ray bursts (GRBs) has been gained in recent months mainly due to the immediate, precise localization of the bursts and the discovery of relatively long-lived X-ray afterglows by the satellite BeppoSAX. These advances have enabled deep searches which have led to the discovery of optical transients coincident with fading X-ray sources. Optical spectroscopy of the latest burst (GRB970508; ref. 8) has clearly demonstrated that it lies at a cosmological… CONTINUE READING
