NASA’s Swift Gamma Ray Burst mission
‘Radio rebound’ observed in aftermath of gamma ray burst
Microlensing observations with space telescope duo reveals brown dwarf
In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, NASA’s Spitzer and Swift space telescopes joined forces to observe a microlensing event, when a distant star brightens due to the gravitational field of at least one foreground cosmic object. This technique is useful for finding low-mass bodies orbiting stars, such as planets. In this case, the observations revealed a brown dwarf.
