Catalog of the 161 Uhuru Sources Observed by the Hard X-ray Experiment

NSSDCA ID: ASXR-00001

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Description

This catalog is a listing of observations made by the Hard X-Ray Experiment (HXX) on the ANS spacecraft (H. Gursky et al., Astrophys. J., v. 201, p. L.27, 1975) of the 161 X-ray sources listed in the 3rd Uhuru Catalog (R. Giacconi et al., Astrophys. J. Suppl., v. 27, p. 37, 1974). The order of the catalog table is by increasing right ascension. For each source, the data are divided into "low background" vs "high background." The data base from this experiment is still held by the original investigators (see NSSDC data set 74-070A-03A). The catalog can be used as an initial reference for parties interested in these data. It contains source identifications and information on the type and amount of data collected on each source.
