  • Chandra Observatory Identifies 28 ULXs in Colliding Galaxy Pair (11 Dec 2014)
    Using Chandra X-ray data as well as Spitzer IR and GALEX UV data, Mineo et al. (2014, ApJ, in press) have now tallied a total of 28 ultraluminous X-ray sources (ULXs) located between the collding galaxies NGC 2207 and IC 2163. Twelve of these vary over a span of several years, including seven that were not detected before because they were in a 'quiet' phase during earlier observations.
