Like a blinding beacon lighting up the night, a powerful gamma-ray-generating stellar husk has been seen pulsating in a neighboring galaxy.
Through extremely high precision measurements of a pulsar orbiting a white dwarf star, astronomers have found that the gravitational constant, which dictates the force of gravity, is 'reassuringly constant' throughout the universe.
NASA engineers think they have figured out a better way to both navigate and communicate far out in deep space.
Astronomers may have not yet found Cybertron but this "transforming" pulsar definitely has a shape-shifting double personality. Continue reading →
This ghostly hand reaching out to the stars is actually an exploded, dead star. Continue reading →
Pulsar astronomers scored big with the finding of a triple star system that includes a millisecond pulsar -- it could be one of the most extreme tests yet for Einstein's general relativity. Continue reading →
Astronomers make the first direct observations of a "missing link" between two stages of neutron star evolution. Continue reading →
The discovery of a pulsar near the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole has revealed that a strong magnetic field exists around the black hole and may account for its poor eating habits. Continue reading →
