But it is also a very challenging book, as the concepts involving X-ray astronomy and quantum physics are not easily grasped by lay people.

    The Ray is the name of four fictional superheroes in the DC Comics Universe.. The first Ray was Langford "Happy" Terrill, a Quality Comics character. When DC Comics later purchased Quality Comics, Happy Terrill was retconned as a member of the Freedom Fighters on Earth-X. The character, created by artist Lou Fine, first appeared in Smash Comics #14 (Sept ) and continued in the book until Alter ego: Langford "Happy" Terrill, Ray Terrill, .

Discovering the X-Ray universe Colossal Clouds of Hot Gas. The "X-ray universe" refers to the universe as observed with telescopes designed to detect X-rays. X-rays are produced in the cosmos when matter is heated to millions of degrees.

Such temperatures occur where high magnetic fields, or extreme gravity, or explosive forces, hold sway. The next revolution in X-ray astronomy was wrought by the Einstein Observatory, launched in and named in honour of the centenary of his birth. X-ray focusing optics had been flown on Copernicus and as part of the Solar astronomy experiment on Skylab but the Einstein Observatory provided the first X-ray images of many classes of astro-File Size: KB.

Tucker is an Associate of the Harvard College Observatory and Giacconi is Director of the Space Telescope Science Institute and astrophysics professor at Johns Hopkins.

Their collaboration goes back to early days, however, when Giacconi hired Tucker to work with. the Chandra X-ray Observatory, detects X-ray radiation that has travelled across the Universe.

The information that the telescope collects is then beamed down to astronomers on Earth to study and to create fantastic pictures. chandra NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory was launched on Space Shuttle Columbia in July of The X-ray Universe 6−9 June Centro Congressi Frentani Rome, Italy A conference organised by the European Space Agency XMM-Newton Science Operations Centre National Institute for Astrophysics, Italian Space Agency University Roma Tre, La Sapienza University ABSTRACT BOOK Oral Communications and Posters Edited by Simone Migliari, Jan.

X-rays make up X-radiation, a form of high-energy electromagnetic X-rays have a wavelength ranging from 10 picometres to 10 nanometres, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (3×10 16 Hz to 3×10 19 Hz) and energies in the range eV to keV.X-ray wavelengths are shorter than those of UV rays and typically longer than those of gamma rays.

The blast wave from the original explosion has been bursting through and heating the ring of gas surrounding the supernova, producing X-ray emission. In the past few years, the ring has stopped getting brighter in X-rays.
