AGILE restarts the scientific observations!

AGILE restart after a no-telemetry hiatus (Jan. 1 – March 25, 2014). Sequence of sky maps showing the one-by-one gamma-ray photon detection as accumulated during the first day of operations (March 26-27, 2014). The AGILE satellite is in ‘spinning mode’ making a complete rotation in about 7 minutes. The empty sky regions corresponds to sky areas now inaccessible by the AGILE sky scanning. The last frame shows the summed-up photon intensity map. Sequence made by F. Verrecchia (ASDC) for the AGILE Team. Thanks to who has signed the petition.
