Sco X-1

Definition

Astronomy

  • Conspicuous X-ray source, the first ever detected, and found in the sky near the centre of the galaxy. Sco X-1’s radiation does not have the regularity of highly predictable pulsars. Instead it may be releasing X-rays at random as it sweeps up comparatively dense interstellar material from the area at the heart of the galaxy.
