Short Gamma-Ray Bursts - New Models Shed Light on Enigmatic Explosions

Janka, Hans-Thomas, Aloy, Miguel, Mueller Ewald
Researchers at the Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics have developed new relativistic models which allow predictions of so far unknown properties of short gamma-ray bursts. Their simulations will come under scrutiny by the Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Explorer, a NASA mission that was launched on November 20, 2004.
