Next meeting tomorrow Monday 27th March – X-ray binaries

The Society welcomes back Paul Roche from Cardiff University.  He will be describing X-ray binary stars.  These are binary star groups – two stars orbiting each other – where one star is stealing matter from the other.  The process generates large amounts of X-rays which is how we can detect them.  As usual the meeting is in the King’s Arms and starts at 19:30 BST, everyone welcome.
