Discovering the Universe: From the Stars to the Planets
The source, called an X-ray burster, emits X rays at a constant low level; then,
suddenly and without warning, an abrupt increase occurs, followed by a gradual
decline. A typical burst lasts for 20 s. Several dozen X-ray bursters have been ...

X-RAY BURSTER the X-ray emission. In other cases, expansion of the normal
star in the course of its evolution results in a flow of gas toward the collapsed star.
This matter forms an accretion disk of hot material which emits X-rays. SEE ALSO

Universe: The Solar System
An X-ray burster is a member of a binary system that accretes matter from its
companion star, then releases nuclear energy when the accreted matter
undergoes thermonuclear reactions. By contrast, a burst from a magnetar is a
release of ...
