In science:

The observations are obtained from accurate irradiance measurements from the IPHIR instrument of the PHOBOS 2 spacecraft with contemporaneous low-degree velocity data from the BiSON instrument at Tenerife (Schrijver et al. 1991).
Stochastic excitation and damping of solar-type oscillations
Phase shifts between intensity observations from the VIRGO/SPM instrument and contemporaneous velocity measurements from the GOLF instrument (symbols with error bars) are plotted as function of frequency in Fig. 3 together with results from various model computations (curves).
Stochastic excitation and damping of solar-type oscillations
Symbols are the results from intensity observations in the green channel of the VIRGO/SPM instrument on the SOHO spacecraft, and from contemporaneous velocity observations from the GOLF instrument.
Stochastic excitation and damping of solar-type oscillations
The observations are obtained from accurate irradiance measurements from the IPHIR instrument of the PHOBOS 2 spacecraft with contemporaneous low-degree velocity data from the BiSON instrument at Tenerife (Schrijver et al. 1991).
Solar-type Variables
It was contemporaneous with a paper by Collins and Hawking, “Why is the universe isotropic?”, that raised the same issue in the specific context of Bianchi cosmologies.
Editorial note to "Large number coincidences and the anthropic principle in cosmology"
Given that blazar emission spans ∼20 orders of magnitude in energy and is highly variable, MWL observations of these objects to measure both SED peaks contemporaneously are crucial for extracting the underlying science.
VHE Blazar Discoveries with VERITAS
It is particularly important to now develop these implications further based on a large population of VHE blazars, from different blazar sub-classes, with contemporaneous SED modeling in all cases.
VHE Blazar Discoveries with VERITAS
The goal of these MWL data is to provide a contemporaneous spectral energy distribution (SED) for modeling of the broadband emission.
VHE Blazar Discoveries with VERITAS
The VHE flux from VER J1427+238, ∼5% Crab, is steady within the observation period, as is the Fermi-LAT flux. A contemporaneous MWL SED is well-described by a one-zone SSC model regardless of the assumed redshift, provided that z < 0.66.
VHE Blazar Discoveries with VERITAS
Five of these were discovered as VHE emitters, and for each of these, results from a contemporaneous MWL observation campaign, including VERITAS, Fermi-LAT, Swift XRT/UVOT, and optical data, are in preparation.
VHE Blazar Discoveries with VERITAS
Continuous wind fireball shocks also produce flashes of softer radiation which are contemporaneous with the GRB flash (Papathanassiou & M´esz´aros, 1996).
Optical and Long Wavelength Afterglow from Gamma-Ray Bursts
The relative amount of contemporaneous soft emission depends on the type of shocks, the particle acceleration process and the strength of the magnetic field in the acceleration region.
Optical and Long Wavelength Afterglow from Gamma-Ray Bursts
For the GRBR, the shock physics is also a ma jor input in determining the comoving intensity I ′ νm (equation 1), and thus the relative amounts of soft emission expected after the main gamma-ray and contemporaneous X-ray/optical flash is over.
Optical and Long Wavelength Afterglow from Gamma-Ray Bursts
So in these cases we expect no significant emission from the GRBR after the gamma-ray flash, although there will be (as in a1) some contemporaneous optical and X-ray emission during the GRB itself, for t < tw .
Optical and Long Wavelength Afterglow from Gamma-Ray Bursts
Much of this enthusiasm was well before the Hubble Space Telescope (HST)2, for example, and roughly contemporaneous with the Orbiting Astronomical Observatory (OAO-2), which was in many respects the first space telescope.
