pulsar

A rotating neutron star whose light appears to pulse. These pulses are the result of beams of radiation sweeping through the direction to the earth, much like a lighthouse beacon. Pulsars were discovered by observations at radio wavelengths but have since been observed at optical, x-ray, and gamma-ray energies.

Pulsar

A neutron star that is rapidly rotating and emitting radio waves. Pulsars are believed to vector the radio emissions so that if Earth lies in the line of sight they appear like a lighthouse (when seen by a radio telescope, that is).

pulsar

A fast-spinning, highly magnetized neutron star, formed (in most cases) following a supernova explosion, that sends out regular directional pulses of radiation as it rotates, in the manner of a lighthouse beam; the pulsar effect is seen if the beam happens to sweep in our direction. Pulsars were fou...

pulsar

pulsar, in astronomy, a neutron star that emits brief, sharp pulses of energy instead of the steady radiation associated with other natural sources. The study of pulsars began when Antony Hewish and his students at Cambridge built a primitive radio telescope to study a scintillation effect on radio ...

pulsar

Celestial source that appears to flash at radio and other wavelengths at regular intervals, ranging from a few seconds to a few thousandths of a second. Pulsars are rapidly rotating neutron stars. They were discovered in 1967 by Jocelyn Bell Burnell and Antony Hewish at the Mullard Radio Astronomy Observatory, Cambridge, England. Pulsars slow down ...

Pulsar

A pulsar (portmanteau of pulsating star) is a highly magnetized, rotating neutron star that emits a beam of electromagnetic radiation. This radiation can only be observed when the beam of emission is pointing toward the Earth, much the way a lighthouse can only be seen when the light is pointed in the direction of an observer, and is responsible f...

Pulsar

Discovered in 1967. Pulsars emit radio signals the pulsations of which are extremely precise. The evidence suggests that pulsars are fast-spinning neutron stars.
