Abstract

Since the results of early surveys revealed the existence of cosmic X-ray sources (Giacconi and Gursky, 1965), the major effort of X-ray astronomy has been devoted to the investigation of their nature. With the exception of the X-ray source in the Crab Nebula (Bowyer et al., 1964), an object well known prior to the discovery of its X-ray emission, the galactic X-ray sources which have been observed do not appear to coincide with conspicuous visible or radio objects.
