Massive stars end their short lives in spectacular explosions, supernovae, that synthesize new elements and drive galaxy evolution. Throughout history supernovae were discovered chiefly through their delayed optical light, preventing observations in the first moments (hours to days) following the explosion. As a result, the progenitors of some supernovae and the events .

    Supernova remnants: the X-ray perspective Jacco Vink Abstract Supernova remnants are beautiful astronomical objects that are also of high scientific interest, because they provide insights into supernova explosion mechanisms, and because they are the likely sources of Galactic cosmic rays. X-ray observationsare an important means to study File Size: 4MB. The spectra of a Type Ia supernova contain a distinct silicon absorption line around Å (vertical orange line as seen in the figure); this line is unique among Type I supernovae and so defines the subgroup-a of the Type I supernovae. Type Ib and Type Ic are characterized by the presence or absence of a helium line around Å. The acceleration of the expansion of the universe, and theneed for Dark Energy, were inferred from the observations of Type Iasupernovae (SNe Ia) 1;2. There is consensus that SNeIa are thermonuclearexplosions that destroy carbon-oxygen white dwarf stars that accretematter from a companion star3.

    Astronomers still do not know if Type Ia supernovae arise in a binary system containing a white dwarf and a 24 A NEW SCIENCE STRATEGY FOR SPACE ASTRONOMY AND ASTROPHYSICS normal star, two white dwarfs, or some other configuration of stars.

SyntaxTextGen not activatedpdf al. ; Nelemans et al. ). For type Ia supernova progen-itors the argument to look for Pdf progenitors is the sugges-tion that supersoft X-ray sources may produce type Ia supernovae, based on the accreting white dwarf model (Whelan & Iben ; Nomoto ).

For type Ib and Ic supernovae, the binary progen.Astrophysical Download pdf sources are astronomical objects with physical properties which result in the emission of X-rays.

There are a number of types of astrophysical objects which emit X-rays, from galaxy clusters, through black holes in active galactic nuclei (AGN) to galactic objects such as supernova remnants, stars, and binary stars containing a white dwarf (cataclysmic variable .Ebook review observations of ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs).

X-ray ebook and timing studies of ULXs suggest a new accretion state distinct from those seen in Galactic stellar-mass black hole binaries. The detection of coherent pulsations indicates the presence of neutron-star accretors in three ULXs and therefore apparently super-Eddington luminosities.
