Jan 22, 2021

From the Chinese Academy of Sciences institute of high energy physics (ihep) of Chinese Academy of Sciences, according to the successful launch of gravitational waves more than a month violence throughout the high-energy electromagnetic counterparts monitor (named as "huairou one telescope, English abbreviation GECAM) two satellites, recently observed number of GRB 210119 a celestial outbreak and promptly to the international astronomical community, this is" the moon "satellite team released the first outbreak of celestial bodies detection results.

Previously, there have been successful observations of gamma ray bursts, Earth occultation of Scorpius X-1, X-ray pulsars, solar flares and high-energy cosmic rays. The scientific team expects to have a rich scientific output in the future.

"Standing" satellite team, according to the latest outbreak of GRB 210119 a celestial event occurred in Beijing time on January 19, 2021 at 10 am 54 minutes 09.85 seconds, according to the "moon" satellite observations can segment of light change curve of the eruption lasts about 50 milliseconds, is likely to be a short gamma ray bursts, but does not rule out a new magnetic star, specific results needs further research.
