Cosmic ray detector X- able to predict the occurrence of “Supernova” Bombings

Research team of astronomers from the University of Leicester found space X- ray detector can be predicted surplus supernova explosion occurred events. Supernova is the phenomenon of massive stars die.

Astronomers have detected excess X–ray radiation emitted by massive stars collapse occurs (collapse), this is perhaps the supernova shock wave emitted by the star’s escape signal. Scientists Department of Physics and Astronomy University of Leicester to the findings, published in the “Royal Astronomical Society Report” on.

Scientists said the biggest solar mass stars can be hundreds of times, when these giant finished burning hydrogen fuel, the core gravitational collapse occurs, while the outer layer of material is blown into space to go. However, there are some unusual alternative supernova, which occurred at the time of the explosion, the material is very thin along the jet stream at near the speed of light emitted from the polar region, which is called the “relativistic jets” (relativistic jet). This jet is accompanied by high-energy gamma-ray transient radiation, commonly referred to as “gamma ray burst” (gamma-ray burst). This outbreak is the first scientific satellite in space to detect, then known astronomers will give ground on the depth observations. “

Generally, optical telescopes on the ground at 10-20 after the outbreak of genius able to detect optical signals outbreak, in which case you missed the real moments supernova explosion. Only the highest energy rotating supernova eruption was accompanied by a gamma ray burst, and requires the outbreak of the predecessor star very quickly. Typically supernova eruption began at the beginning, will be issued X- ray characteristics can be identified. If you can take advantage of an early warning system X- ray supernova moment to predict in advance, so astronomers can it be real-time monitoring (real-time monitor), the initiator of this as soon as possible to determine the universe’s most violent bombings.
