A star with very specific properties.

Description / Specifications[edit]

The rotation rate of a neutron star decays at a very predicable rate.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

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.
