Installing Hera on Your Computer
Hera is a new service offered by the High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center (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. Student hera is a slimmed-down version. Note - your machine must be connected to the internet in order to run Student 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. Clicking on the links below will download the appropriate file to your desktop. When the download is complete, click on the icon, or on "run" to run the installation wizard. The installation wizard will guide you through the installation on your local computer.
The installation procedure will produce 3 icons for users, fv, Hera and Student Hera. To start up Student Hera, double click on that icon.
