Blues for a Dead World
Here you have an impression of a high-mass x-ray binary (HMXB), in which a blue giant (right) orbits a compact object such as a neutron star or black hole. The blue giant has a powerful stellar wind, shown radiating outwards here. Some of this materi...

Magnetar
... , 400,000 kilometres away, it could still wipe your credit cards and rip spoons out of your pockets. A magnetar is a type of neutron star with an incredibly strong magnetic field (a million billion times stronger than that of the Earth), which is for ...

Merging Neutron Stars
Neutron stars merging. Neutron stars are the remnants of stars that have run out of fuel and exploded as supernova, eventually collapsing into a superdense core. A typical neutron star has a mass of between 1.3 and 2.1 solar masses but measures only ...

Pulsar Planet
This is a rendition of a pulsar, which is a rapidly spinning neutron star, the collapsed remains of a dead star's core. Some spin hundreds of times per second. As they do, beams of radiation – usually radio waves but often, and as seen here, optica...

Stellar Bow Shock
... f particles that blasts away from the star's surface and out into space. But when another star is present – in this case a neutron star – the latter captures some of the wind material. The gas forms a bow shock around the compact star, somewhat l ...

Low-Mass X-Ray Binary II
This image shows a low-mass x-ray binary star seen from a nearby, hypothetical asteroid field. The system consists of a red dwarf (bottom) which is losing its atmosphere to a black hole via an accretion disc....

Pulsar
Pulsars are like cosmic lighthouses. This image was done to show how a pulsar actually works. Radiation comes out of the cones. The whole thing spins on its axis, often several times a second. Then, if the Earth is in the line of sight of the radiati...

High-Mass X-Ray Binary
This is an animation of a high-mass x-ray binary, in which a giant blue star is in orbit around a compact companion – sometimes a neutron star and sometimes a black hole. The giant star is distorted owing to its proximity to its highly compact part...
