    BATSE, the Burst And Transient Source Experiment, was a high energy astrophysics experiment launched on the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory in BATSE, between its launch and the termination of its orbit in , has observed and recorded data from over events including γ-ray bursts, pulsars, terrestrial γ-ray flashes, soft gamma Cited by: Abstract Some short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are followed by longer extended emission (EE), lasting anywhere from ˜10 to ˜ s. These short GRBs with EE can possess observational characteristics of both short and long GRBs (as represented by GRB ), and the traditional classification based on the observed duration places some of them in the long GRB class.

For the averaged time history, a difference is found between the rise front and the back slope, and good evidence is found for the presence of hard‐to‐soft spectral Cited by: 5.

Abstract: We present a systematic spectral analysis of bright GRBs observed with BATSE, with high spectral and temporal resolution. Our sample was selected from the complete set of BATSE GRBs, and included 17 short GRBs.

To obtain well-constrained spectral parameters, four different photon models were fitted and the spectral parameters that best represent each spectrum were. We examine the evidence for repeating of ϒ-ray bursts in light of the BATSE 2B catalog.

The temporal coverage of the 2B-1B (non-MAXBC) data set is ≈ 1/3 smaller than that of the 1B catalog. We find evidence that the distributions of the burst statistical positional errors and of the burst fluences also differ.

BATSE usually detects only about one gamma-ray burst per day, and the locations in the sky of nearly 1, events detected to date (diagram) appear to be randomly distributed. "That's what makes these four events so unusual," says Dr. Charles Meegan of NASA/Marshall, and a co-investigator on the BATSE experiment.

Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor The Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) is the secondary instrument on the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly GLAST). The experiment supports the Large-Area Telescope (LAT) in its observations of gamma-ray bursts and follows in the tracks of CGRO BATSE in observations of pulsars, terrestrial gamma-ray flashes, soft gamma repeaters, solar flares, and any.

This is the first in a series of gamma-ray burst spectroscopy catalogs from the Burst And Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray. In most bursts (), the high-energy continuum was consistent with a power law.

The evolution of the fitted high-energy power-law index over the selected spectra for each burst is inconsistent with a constant for 34% of the total sample.

The sample distribution of the average value for the index from each burst is fairly narrow, centered on The BATSE experiment on CGRO studied some of the most energetic objects in the Universe, including gamma-ray bursts.

These mysterious bursts are seen to occur at random in the sky about once per day. As a result of BATSE observations, most scientists now believe that these bursts originate from the most distant parts of the observable Universe. The first thing astronomers usually do after a gamma-ray burst is scramble to detect the fading afterglow.

An afterglow's spectrum (i.e., its colors) can reveal the distance to the blast site. This is crucial information astronomers must have to calculate a gamma-ray burst's power.

The internal luminosity function of gamma-ray burst The object, GRO J, first was observed in December,by an Earth-orbiting satellite, the Burst and Transient Source Experiment on board the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory.

gamma-ray bursts mostly came from neutron stars in the disk of the Galaxy. Inthe Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory was launched, as one of NASA’s Great Observatories program. The Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) was particularly well-suited for detection of GRBs, since it had a low flux limit and all-sky coverage.

In four years BATSE has observed more than gamma-ray bursts, making unprecedented measurements of their spatial and brightness distributions. These measurements and their implications for the origin of gamma-ray bursts are by: Astronomy Picture of the Day. Discover the cosmos!
