      Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs), short and intense pulses of low energy gamma-rays, have fascinated astronomers and astrophysicists since their unexpected discovery in the late sixties. During the last decade, several space missions: BATSE (Burst and Transient Source Experiment) on Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory, BeppoSAX and now HETE II (High-Energy Transient Explorer), together Cited by: Utilizing the latest research, Gamma-ray Bursts is an essential desktop companion for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics\"--\/span>\"@ en\/a> ; \u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\n schema:description\/a> \" \"Cosmic gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have fascinated scientists and the public alike since their discovery in the late s.

With the launch of the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory by NASA inastronomers began to identify many more bursts and to learn more about them (Figure ). Approximately once per day, the NASA satellite detected a flash of gamma rays somewhere in the sky that lasted from a fraction of a second to several hundred seconds.

"This unusual and stimulating book on Gamma Ray Bursts describes theory and observations in laymen's language, mixed with history, science politics, controversy and personalities. Beyond the single topic of Gamma Ray Bursts it illustrates the chaotic way which science usually follows, by showing not only the successes but the many false starts which nevertheless help the process."Author: Jonathan I.
