Scientists Watch an Explosion on a Neutron Star
Summary - (Feb 23, 2004) Canadian and NASA scientists have captured details of swirling gas as it hovers above the surface of a neutron star. A
massive explosion on the surface of the neutron star illuminated the material long enough for scientists to see normally hidden details, such as its
accretion disk - a ring of gas swirling around and into the neutron star. The binary pair is located 25,000 light-years from Earth, and it was tracked
by NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer.
I so wish I had something big enough i could see this for my self.
