Scientists compile huge catalogue of wild explosions in space

DTU has contributed to an international study that has examined decades of X-ray data and created the world’s largest collection of thermonuclear explosions on neutron stars in the Milky Way. More than 200.000 observations have been analysed. The study has been published in Astrophysical Journal Supplements.

Busy astrophysicist discovers two new x-ray sources

September and October were very busy months for Jérôme Chenevez, an astrophysicist at DTU Space.Hidden in recent data from ESA's INTEGRAL satellite he discovered a signal from an unknown source, which behaves as though it might be a neutron star - and just over a month later he repeated his success by finding a new black hole...
