X-ray observation has shown that there are a range of X-ray sources that are not coincident with galactic nulei, but have too high a luminosity to be a black hole and too long a life to be supernovae. They are referred to as Ultraluminous X-ray sources, or ULXs. Dr Dom Walton, a researcher at the Institute of Astronomy of University of Cambridge, will give a talk about these sources and the discovery of them.
