Pulsar (2018)

A pulsar (from pulse and -ar as in quasar) is a highly magnetized rotating neutron star that emits a
beam of electromagnetic radiation. Neutron stars are very dense, and have short, regular rotational
periods.

The first pulsar was observed on November 28, 1967, by Jocelyn Bell Burnell and Antony Hewish.
They observed pulses separated by 1.33 seconds that originated from the same location in the sky,
and kept to sidereal time.
