SS 433

[‚es‚es ‚fȯr‚thərd·ē′thrē]
(astronomy)
A stellar object that shows evidence of ejection of two narrow streams of cool gas travelling in opposite direction from a cool object at a velocity of almost one-quarter the speed of light; the beams execute a repeating, rotating pattern about the central object once every 164 days.

A suitable treatment is offered by the relativistic hydrocodes developed recently, such as the relativistic magnetohydrodynamical (RMHD) PLUTO hydrocode [15] employed in [7, 16, 17] in order to simulate the hadronic jets of the SS-433 MQ, an X-ray binary star [5, 6, 18].
These detectors sparked a renewed interest in studying stellar objects as neutrino and gamma ray sources; for example, the SS-433 system is widely known from the early 1980s as the only MQ with a verified hadronic jet content.
