On July 2,at UTC, the Vela 4 and Vela 3 satellites detected a flash of gamma radiation unlike any known nuclear weapons signature. Uncertain what had happened but not considering the matter particularly.Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) are bright flashes of highly energetic light, ranging from one k eV to many G eV, which last from a few milliseconds to several can have a rise times as fast as 10 −4 s, and exponentially decay.

Gamma-ray bursts are detected about once per day from random directions in the celestial sphere. They have luminosities of × 10 44 W, making them shine.
