BeppoSAX was named in honour of the Italian physicist Giuseppe "Beppo" Occhialini. SAX stands for "Satellite per Astronomia a raggi X" or "Satellite for X-rayAstronomy".
The burst lasted 270 seconds, making it the longest burst that had ever been detected by X-rayastronomy satellite BeppoSAX up to that point.
In the 1960s and 1970s, early X-rayastronomy observations demonstrated that Seyfert galaxies and quasars are powerful sources of X-ray emission, which originates from the inner regions of black hole accretion disks.
... October 6, 1931 – December 9, 2018) was an Italian-American Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist who laid down the foundations of X-rayastronomy.
ASTRO-C, renamed Ginga (Japanese for 'galaxy'), was an X-rayastronomy satellite launched from the Kagoshima Space Center on 5 February 1987 using M-3SII launch vehicle.
The orbit of Exosat was different from any previous X-rayastronomy satellite.
Hundreds of thousands of multiplexed SQUIDs coupled to transition-edge sensors are presently being deployed to study the Cosmic microwave background, for X-rayastronomy, to search for dark matter made up of Weakly interacting massive particles, and for spectroscopy at Synchrotron light sources.
X-rayastronomy is an observational branch of astronomy which deals with the study of X-ray observation and detection from astronomical objects.
He was a pioneer in X-rayastronomy, leading the development and operation of the Ginga, Tenma, and ASCA satellites. He died on 18 January 2018.
From 1972 to 1975, during post-doctoral work at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, he worked on several x-rayastronomy rocket payloads.
In the 1960s, he pioneered X-rayastronomy and space plasma physics.
Although optical telescopes can image the near ultraviolet, the ozone layer in the stratosphere absorbs ultraviolet radiation shorter than 300 nm so most ultra-violet astronomy is conducted with satellites.
The Kuiper Airborne Observatory and the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy use airplanes to observe in the infrared, which is absorbed by water vapor in the atmosphere.
Space-based astronomy is more important for frequency ranges that are outside the optical window and the radio window, the only two wavelength ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum that are not severely attenuated by the atmosphere.
The discovery by Karl Jansky in 1931 that radio signals were emitted by celestial bodies initiated the science of radio astronomy.
