Who discovered pulsars?

The first pulsar was found by Jocelyn Bell Burnell and Antony Hewish in July 1967. Because they had not idea what they had discovered they called the new object LGM-1 , for (MORE)

How are pulsars formed?

Pulsars are rapidly rotating neutron stars that emit beams of electromagnetic energy. Neutron stars form when the core of a massive star collapses and goes supernova leavin (MORE)

How are pulsars detected?

Most pulsars are detected purely through luck. Many organizationshave radio telescopes constantly scanning the skies for signals,sometimes one picks up a regular periodic sign (MORE)

What is pulsars?

A Pulsar or Neutron Star is the remnants of a collapsed Super Giant, created during a Super Nova. The neutrons are so densely packed that they warp the gravity around the dyin (MORE)

How does the lighthouse model explain pulsars?

A neutron star contains a powerful magnetic field and spins very rapidly. the spinning magnetic field generates a tremendously powerful electric field, and the filed causes th (MORE)

How do pulsars spin so fast?

Because of the conservation of rotational momentum. As a stars core collapses, it retains the original rotational velocity. As a pulsar or neutron star's original size was in (MORE)

What star or pulsars from?

A Pulsar is nothing more than a neutron star with it's magnetic poles pointing towards Earth. See related question.

How do pulsars form?

Pulsars are like black holes. They are dead stars which are collapsing but slowly with the heat and pressure still contained withtin the star, thus, producing their pulsing li (MORE)

Why do some stars turn into pulsars?

After going nova some stars turn into neutron star - being composed almost entirely of neutrons. These are very compact and massive and rotate extremely quickly. Typically the (MORE)

Pulsars are a form of?

A pulsar is a dead star, after it has imploded on itself it leaves behind a small planet if that is what you want to call it. so a pulsar is a form of star.

What are quasars and pulsars?

Pulsars are rapidly spinning neutron stars that appear to pulse. Quasars are the brightest objects in our universe, but are technically not stars although they are star-like (MORE)

What is pulsars how it formed?

When a star stops shining, it will undergo a gravitational collapse - it can no longer maintain its size. Stars below a certain mass limit become white dwarves - with a diamet (MORE)

Why do pulsars beep?

Pulsars rotate like most stars. Pulsars also emit beams of energy which, if they cross our path are perceived as pulses of energy with a regular rate (ticks, beeps, etc). This (MORE)

How do you know pulsars are neutron stars?

Because the characteristics of a pulsar can only occur from a body as dense and as small as a neutron star to "pulsate" at such speeds.

Are pulsars neutron stars?

When a neutron star is "born" [See related question], it emits a steady beam of electromagnetic radiation. When this beam is directed towards Earth it is called a Pulsar. [See (MORE)

Are all pulsars neutron stars?

All young neutron stars in reality are "pulsars". However, for a neutron star to be termed a pulsar, it's magnetic axis has to point towards Earth. (So we can see the pulse (MORE)

Why are pulsars hot?

Pulsars and neutron stars are hot because of all the residual heat left over in the core of the original star.

How were pulsars discovered?

Astronomers looked through telescopes to notice that a particular star was turning "off" and "on". With new coming technology we've found that this is not true- finding out th (MORE)

What is a a Pulsars?

Pulsars are neutron stars that are formed when a large star burns up its fuel and collapses on itself. The process happens when fuel is exhausted so that the star cannot produ (MORE)
