JEM-X First light image of the neutron star Cen X-3

January 7, 2013
First image of an X-ray star, Cen X-3, obtained with the Joint European Monitor for X-Rays (JEM-X). The star is the small black dot near the centre. Although maybe unimpressive, the image gives the scientist the confidence that the instruments are capable of detecting and accurately pinpointing X-ray sources in the sky (Courtesy of JEM-X Team) Date: 27 Oct 2002 Copyright: ESA
