ESA Science & Technology - INTEGRAL
ESA's INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory is detecting some of the most energetic radiation that comes from space. It is the most sensitive gamma-ray observatory ever launched. INTEGRAL is an ESA mission in cooperation with Russia and the United States.
29 April 2019Data from ESA's INTEGRAL high-energy observatory have helped shed light on the workings of a mysterious black hole found spitting out 'bullets' of plasma while rotating through space.
10 January 2019ESA's high-energy space telescopes INTEGRAL and XMM-Newton have helped to find a source of powerful X-rays at the centre of an unprecedentedly bright and rapidly evolving stellar explosion that suddenly appeared in the sky earlier this year.
12 July 2018An international team has found first evidence of a source of high-energy neutrinos: a flaring active galaxy, or blazar. Following a detection by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, ESA's INTEGRAL satellite joined a collaboration of observatories in space and on the ground that kept an eye on the neutrino source, heralding the thrilling future of...
16 October 2017ESA's INTEGRAL satellite recently played a crucial role in discovering the flash of gamma rays linked to the gravitational waves released by the collision of two neutron stars.
