Merging Galaxies Bursting With Light - NGC 2207 and IC 2163 Just like our Milky Way galaxy, NGC 2207 and IC 2163 are sprinkled with many star systems known as X-ray binaries, which consist of a star in a tight orbit around either a neutron star or a stellar-mass black hole.

You can see the pulsar at the centre of the whirling clouds of dust with a high speed jet exiting toward the bottom,
