Installing Hera on your computer

Hera is a new service offered by the HEASARC that enables complete interactive analysis of archived data products. Hera consists of a network of Linux server machines at the HEASARC which have the latest version of the tool packages developed at ASD to use with X-ray data in FITs format. Currently, Hera can be installed on systems running the operating systems listed below. Please select the links below for (1) Windows or (2) Mac. If the version of the operating system that you run is not listed in one of those categories, you most likely will not be able to install Hera. Note - your machine must be connected to the Internet in order to run Hera. If you have further questions or issues about installation or wish to contact us for help, view the installation notes.

Note: The download might take a while, especially when using a slow modem, so plan to do the installation well before you want to use the system.

Make sure you are using the most up to date version.

Imagine the Universe is a service of the High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center (HEASARC), Dr. Alan Smale (Director), within the Astrophysics Science Division (ASD) at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
