A Pulsed Discovery In Omega Centauri

A Pulsed Discovery In Omega Centauri

A recent study has unveiled a new discovery at the heart of globular cluster Omega Centauri: five long-anticipated pulsars.

The globular cluster Omega Centauri makes for an impressive sight — millions of stars gravitationally bound into a beautiful sphere, its core alight from the glow of densely packed bodies. A recent study has unveiled a new discovery at the heart of this cluster: five long-anticipated pulsars.

Astrophysicists Link Brightening of Pulsar Wind Nebula to Pulsar Spin-down Rate Transition—Chinese Academy of Sciences

Astrophysicists Link Brightening of Pulsar Wind Nebula to Pulsar Spin-down Rate Transition—Chinese Academy of Sciences

Astrophysicists have discovered that the pulsar wind nebula (PWN) surrounding the famous pulsar B0540-69 brightened gradually after the pulsar experienced a sudden spin-down rate transition (SRT). This discovery, made by a group of astrophysicists led by GE Mingyu and LU Fangjun at the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, provides important clues to the spin-down mechanism and the magnetic field structure of the pulsar, as well as the physical properties of the PWN. The results were published in Nature Astronomy.

Black Hole Holograms

Black Hole Holograms

A research team from Osaka University, Nihon University and Chuo University has proposed a novel theoretical framework whose experiment could be performed in a laboratory to better understand the physics of black holes. This project can shed light on the fundamental laws that govern the cosmos on both unimaginably small and vastly large scales.

Three Stellar Populations? Unresolved Binaries? Mysteries of the Orion Nebula Cluster

Does the Orion Nebula Cluster actually include three distinct stellar populations? Or is it all just a bunch of unresolved binaries and triple systems?
