On grounds of Mazetset al. (a) conclusion that all gamma-ray bursts recorded were emitted at the distance ≲1 kpc from the Sun it is shown that bursts from the Galaxy and from another galaxies may be observable byEinstein Observatory (HEAO-B).

8 White's acclimatization to the HSP The European X-ray Observatory Satellite (EXOSAT) was operational from May to April and in that time made detailed observations of a wide variety of astronomical objects. The scientific payload consists of two energy telescopes (LEIT), a medium energy proportional counter (ME), and a gas scintillator proportional counter (GSPC).

Observers are always encouraged to contact the instrument team for the latest performance results—especially for the Low configuration, which suffers from saturation effects. There are potential work-arounds that reduce the instrument sensitivity and may require extra overheads to prepare for and recover from low resolution ://   THE ROSAT OBSERVATORY The main instrument of the ROSAT observatory is a fourfold nested Wolter type I X-ray mirro~ system with 83 cm aperture and cm focal length.

The unobscured collecting area is cm and thus almost three times larger than that of the Einstein observatory which had a front aper- ture of 57 ://   Executive summary. Astronomers today have access to an impressive set of space missions and “ground based” observatories that gives them nearly continuous coverage of the electromagnetic spectrum from the γ-ray to the radio there is serious concern about the situation in the next 10–15 years, when current space astronomy missions will have ended and new missions will be much   Observers are always encouraged to contact the instrument team for the latest performance results, however, in particular for the Low configuration, which suffers from saturation effects.

The proposer needs to supply the central wavelength, the spectroscopic configuration, the slit width, and the observing mode for each observation (Table 4). The European Space Agency's X-ray Observatory, EXOSAT, was operational from May to April During that time, EXOSAT made observations of a wide variety of objects, including active galactic nuclei, stellar coronae, cataclysmic variables, white dwarfs, X-ray binaries, clusters of galaxies, and supernova Third Japanese X-ray Astronomy Satellite.
