Massive stars end their short lives in spectacular explosions, supernovae, that synthesize new elements and drive galaxy evolution. Throughout history supernovae were discovered chiefly through their delayed optical light, preventing observations in the first moments (hours to days) following the explosion. As a result, the progenitors of some supernovae and the events .

    Supernova remnants: the X-ray perspective Jacco Vink Abstract Supernova remnants are beautiful astronomical objects that are also of high scientific interest, because they provide insights into supernova explosion mechanisms, and because they are the likely sources of Galactic cosmic rays. X-ray observationsare an important means to study File Size: 4MB. The spectra of a Type Ia supernova contain a distinct silicon absorption line around Å (vertical orange line as seen in the figure); this line is unique among Type I supernovae and so defines the subgroup-a of the Type I supernovae. Type Ib and Type Ic are characterized by the presence or absence of a helium line around Å.

    The acceleration of the expansion of the universe, and theneed for Dark Energy, were inferred from the observations of Type Iasupernovae (SNe Ia) 1;2. There is consensus that SNeIa are thermonuclearexplosions that destroy carbon-oxygen white dwarf stars that accretematter from a companion star3. Astronomers still do not know if Type Ia supernovae arise in a binary system containing a white dwarf and a 24 A NEW SCIENCE STRATEGY FOR SPACE ASTRONOMY AND ASTROPHYSICS normal star, two white dwarfs, or some other configuration of stars. The accreting white dwarf supersoft x-ray sources may be related to the progenitors of Type Ia .

In the single degenerate (SD) scenario for Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) progenitors, an accreting white dwarf (WD) is expected to undergo a supersoft X-ray source (SSS) phase. Recently, Gilfanov and Bogdan (hereafter GB10) claimed that observed X-ray fluxes of early-type galaxies would be too low to be consistent with the prediction of the SD.

There are insufficient super-soft (∼ keV) X-ray sources in either spiral or elliptical galaxies to account for the rate of explosion of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in either the single-degenerate or the double-degenerate scenarios.

I have once looked (but not read ;-) this book but overlooked the catalog. The book covers all aspects, ranging from the observations of SNe Ia at all Luminous Supersoft X-Ray Sources as Type Ia Progenitors. Pages Stefano, R. (et al.) The Late-Time Emission of Thermonuclear Supernovae.

Pages Ruiz-Lapuente, : Springer Netherlands. An ultraluminous X-ray source (ULX) is an astronomical source of X-rays that is less luminous than an active galactic nucleus but is more consistently luminous than any known stellar process (over 10 39 erg/s, or 10 32 watts), assuming that it radiates isotropically (the same in all directions).

Typically there is about one ULX per galaxy in galaxies which host them, but some. We predict that future wide-field X-ray surveys will catch each year hundreds of supernovae in the act of exploding.

For type Ia supernova progen-itors the argument to look for X-ray progenitors is the sugges-tion that supersoft X-ray sources may produce type Ia supernovae, based on the accreting white dwarf model (Whelan & Iben ; Nomoto ). For type Ib and Ic supernovae, the binary progen.Astrophysical X-ray sources are astronomical objects with physical properties which result in the emission of X-rays.

There are a number of types of astrophysical objects which emit X-rays, from galaxy clusters, through black holes in active galactic nuclei (AGN) to galactic objects such as supernova remnants, stars, and binary stars containing a white dwarf (cataclysmic variable .We review observations of ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs).

X-ray spectroscopic and timing studies of ULXs suggest a new accretion state distinct from those seen in Galactic stellar-mass black hole binaries.

The detection of coherent pulsations indicates the presence of neutron-star accretors in three ULXs and therefore apparently super-Eddington luminosities. Optical and X Author: Philip Kaaret, Hua Feng, Timothy P. Roberts.
