Cosmic gamma-ray telescope Swift during his work he registered the 1,000 th gamma ray burst (gamma-ray burst, GRB), extremely bright flash of gamma radiation, which is a manifestation of the most powerful and energetic events in the Universe, such as supernovae explosions and the "birth" of black holes. Gamma-ray bursts, lasting about a minute or less, a fairly common phenomenon, they occur every few days and are in completely random points in the night sky. But if astronomers manage to catch such an event, it gives their hands a lot of valuable information about high-energy processes occurring in the depths of the Universe.
