A pulsar 25,000 light-years away is wobbling in a weird way. But Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted it more than a century ago. Einstein's theory of general relativity has been confirmed once again, this time in the wobbling of a pulsar 25,000 light-years from Earth. Over the span of 14
Using archival data from ESA's XMM-Newton spacecraft and NASA's Chandra X-ray observatory, astronomers have investigated one of gamma-ray radio-quiet pulsars known as PSR J1826−1256. The study, based on X-ray observations, sheds more light into the nature of this peculiar object and its pulsar wind nebula (PWN). Results of the research
Most stars are just out there in space, doing their star thing, but not the pulsar called RX J0806.4-4123. It's been caught doing something that's never been seen before. It's emitting infrared radiation - and only infrared radiation - at a huge distance.Long-distance emission from neutron stars is nothing new.
