Creator: Duncan, Robert C.
Publisher: University of Texas at Austin. Dept. of Astronomy
Description: This site describes soft gamma repeaters. The author, Robert C. Duncan of the University of Texas at Austin, explains how these strange, physically-extreme stars form, and why they emit steadily pulsating X-rays with sporadic, bright outbursts. The author also tells the story of their discovery and of the theoretical efforts which helped to reveal their bizarre nature. A version of the site is also available in Spanish.
