Interestingly, when researchers first observed the pulsar, they had seen nothing like it, and the periodic radio flashes made it look like the object was artificial in originl.
Looking within a box 40[degrees] on a side centered on the galaxy's center, the team picked out about 100 point sources likely to be pulsars based on the shape of their gamma-ray spectra.
Three weak X-ray pulsars (B0540-69, B1744-24A, and B182313) are selected to simulate the proposed detection algorithm's performance.
The core objective of the XPNAV-1 mission is to validate the ability of observing X-ray pulsars. To achieve this, eight X-ray sources are chosen as default targets.
"Pulsars will allow us to see these massive objects as they slowly spiral closer together."
Two pulsars locked in tight orbits (illustrated) provide an ideal way to measure the effects of general relativity.
A spinning neutron star that produces a beam of radiation is called a pulsar. The radiation sweeps by like a beacon of light from a lighthouse and can be detected as pulses of radio waves and other types of radiation.
It has already exported a few Pulsar AS150 and the AS200 to Nepal.
PSR J1723-2837 is an eclipsing 1.86 millisecond binary pulsar that was discovered in the Parkes Multibeam (PM) survey.
Then, currently, five exoplanets orbiting around three different pulsars have been discovered, three around PSR 1257+12, one around PSR B1620-26, and one around PSR 1719-1438.
Co-author Sergio Campana, an astronomer at Brera Observatory in Merate, Italy, said that this transitional object took decades to find, and it provides them with a unique opportunity to observe a pulsar's intense magnetic field in action.
