Fast spinning pulsar is actually TWO stars: Ultra-bright object found in a distant galaxy is a binary star system



Astronomers have discovered a pulsar nestled in a region which blasts out more radiation than one million suns.
European scientists came across the object while scanning a distant spiral galaxy NGC 7793, whose light takes almost 13 million years to reach the Earth.
The strange stellar object was found in an bright region of the galaxy classed as an ultraluminous x-ray (ULX) source.
