NASA's Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer and Chandra X-ray Observatory, ESA's XMM-Newton and Japan's Suzaku satellite, as well as the ground-based Gran Telescopio Canarias and the Green Bank Telescope, were alerted and the star's activity was monitored until April 2012, during which time the outburst began to decay.
10, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Using observations from NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) satellite and the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA) radio telescope, an international team of astronomers has identified the moment when a black hole in our galaxy launched superfast knots of gas into space.
Armed with the new, precise distance measurement, scientists using the Chandra X-Ray Observatory, the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer, the Advanced Satellite for Cosmology and Astrophysics, and visible-light observations made over more than two decades, calculated that the black hole in Cygnus X-1 is nearly 15 times more massive than our Sun and is spinning more than 800 times per second.
This new theory by scientists from the Lab, the University of California at Berkeley and the Space Science lab is supported by observations from NASA's sophisticated new satellite, the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer.
