HEAT featuring Chryssa Kouveliotou (MSFC)
This week's HEAT presents Chryssa Kouveliotou who is visiting CAASTRO from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center for a few weeks. Chryssa will talk about some of her work on a newly-discovered magnetar, Swift J1834.9-0846 and describe the multi-satellite observations of the source. An asymmetric region around the source extending between 50" to 150" from the center, detected in pre- and post-outburst data, is claimed to be a magnetar wind nebula (Younes et al. 2012).
