view of Zeta Ophiuchi star
Zeta Ophiuchi is a star with a complicated past, having likely been ejected from its birthplace by a powerful stellar explosion.  A new look by NASA’s Chandra X‐ray Observatory helps tell more of the story of this runaway star.
Located about 440 light years from Earth, Zeta Ophiuchi is a hot star that is 20 times more massive than the Sun.
