According to Ms Batse, the deceased woke up due to the noise and struggled with Asiedu, during which the deceased was stabbed several times in the chest and neck leading to his death.
Liang and Kargatis [120], using 34 bright GRBs detected by BATSE, found that [E.sub.peak] depends linearly on the previous flux emitted by the pulse, that is, that the rate of change of [E.sub.peak] is proportional to the instantaneous luminosity.
No caso dos GRBs, os detectores mais utilizados sao os do tipo cintilador (Batse, BeppoSAX, Agile e GBM/Fermi) e os do tipo semicondutor (Swift e LAT/Fermi).

But the BATSE team made the surprising discovery that GRBs seem to come equally from all directions in space.
BATSE can not pinpoint a source, but information from other satellites and telescopes aimed at that region of the sky have begun pouring in.
She adds that BATSE has detected fewer faint bursts than expected; Paczynski says this offers more evidence that bursts originate outside our galaxy.
During Compton's nine-year lifetime, its BATSE instrument (Burst And Transient Source Experiment) recorded 2,704 gamma-ray bursts in detail.
We search for correlations between ILF power-law indices and a number of other observed gamma-ray burst attributes for a large BATSE dataset.
But the emissions detected by GRO's Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) show no evidence of such clustering, casting doubt on the theory.

In old data from the BATSE instrument on NASA's Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, Kippen found very weak gamma rays whose timing and direction matched 9 of the 10 BeppoSAX X-ray flashes that happened to be in BATSE's field of view.
