Release of the October 2017 issue of the X-IFU Gazette

Thanks to Françoise Douchin, on behalf of the editorial team, I am pleased to announce the release of the October 2017 issue of the X-IFU Gazette. The slight delay is due to the fact that we wanted to include a note by Luigi Piro on the detection of the X-ray counterpart of the neutron star merger that shacked the world on Monday. Thanks Luigi and congratulation for this very important discovery. Looking forward to detect those routinely with the X-IFU.

Thanks to all the contributors to this new Gazette.

Enjoy the reading. Don’t hesitate to provide feedback to Françoise ( on the content of the X-IFU Gazette.

Best regards,

Françoise and Didier
