X-ray and ultraviolet observations from NASA's Swift satellite have given new infoprmation about the origins of Type Ia supernovae.
Astronomers have come up with two competing theories to explain a mysterious cosmic explosion first detected by NASA's Swift observatory on Christmas Day 2010.
Short gamma ray bursts could be more damaging to life on Earth than longer ones, says a Washburn University astrophysicist who's been studying data from the SWIFT satellite.
Astronomers have spotted a supermassive black hole in the act of shredding and consuming a star 3.9 billion light years away.
Astronomers are poring over data from what they say is one of the most puzzling cosmic blasts ever observed.
The most powerful X-ray blast ever detected from deep space temporarily blinded NASA's Swift space observatory last month.
