Crab Nebula Flares Mysteriously

Crab Nebula Flares Mysteriously

Once thought to be a stable source in the sky, the Crab Nebula has erupted in another gamma-ray flare.

The Crab is at it again.

On March 3rd the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope spotted a flare from the Crab Nebula, a spike in gamma-ray emission that’s three times greater than the average output. The Italian AGILE satellite detected it, too, and on March 4th both teams sent telegrams calling for more observations. As of yesterday, the flare is ongoing.
