A star with very specific properties.
- Another name for a Neutron Star.
Description / Specifications
The rotation rate of a neutron star decays at a very predicable rate.
History & Background / Dossier
Given the name because the rapidly rotating, but very tiny, core has a radio signal most strongly emitted from its magnetic poles.
- This produces, at a given point in space, a very regular radio pulse.
- This allows the pulsar to be a very accurate clock. In combination with multiple pulsar signals becomes a very accurate stellar navigation beacon.
