Electromagnetic Bursts

Apr 15, 2019 Unusually intense magnetic fields are said to be caused by merging neutron stars. According to a recent article in the science journal, Nature, astronomers think they saw the formation of a specific class of celestial object called a “magnetar”, or a “magnetic neutron star”. Many Pictures of…

X-Ray Milky Way

Dec 7, 2018 X-rays from galactic cores are accelerated by electric fields. Rather than accepting electric fields as a source, astronomers prefer to think of “strong winds blowing” out of the galaxy’s core. Often called “Ultra-Luminous X-ray sources” (ULX), they are points across the sky more powerful than a million…

X-ray Eruption

  Aug 25, 2015 Stellar flares are seen in unexpected places. In a September 30, 2014 press release, NASA officials from the Goddard Space Flight Center announced that their SWIFT satellite detected a stellar flare with X-ray emissions larger than anything they expected to witness from DG Canum Venaticorum, a…

Circinus: an X-Ray Binary?

  Jun 24, 2014 Neutron stars are not viable explanations for energetic objects. Recently, the Chandra observatory detected what they are calling the “youngest” X-ray binary star radiating massive amounts of energy into space. The radiation is in X-ray wavelengths, which non-electrical theories can only interpret as being generated by matter that…
