Abstract

An X-ray source coinciding in position with Supernova 1987 A was discovered in July 1987 by the group operating the Ginga satellite (Dotani et al. 1987). Its existence has been confirmed by measurements made on board the Mir-Kvant Observatory (Sunyaev et al. 1987), as well as by several balloon experiments. The emission extends at least from 6 KeV up to the MeV range (see the reviews by Tanaka and Triimper in this Conference).
