The Mystery of Gamma-Ray Bursts
Author and Affiliation:
Fishman, Gerald J.(NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL United States)
Abstract: Gamma-ray bursts remain on of the greatest mysteries in astrophysics in spite of recent observational advances and intense theoretical work. Although some of the basic properties of bursts were known 25 years ago, new and more detailed observations have been made by the BATSE (Burst and Transient Source Experiment) experiment on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory in the past five years. Recent observations of bursts and some proposed models will be discussed.
