Dico S.F. – Pulsar

Abbreviation of “pulsating radio source”, a pulsar is a neutron star spinning around very fast (to several hundreds round per second!) and emitting a radio beam very intense in a precise direction.

The beam coming to the observer only intermittently, the radio emission seems to “pulse”, like the light beam of a beacon illuminates a ship jerkily.

Matching words : Magnetar, Neutron star
