What are pulsars and what pulsars do you know in our Galaxy?

Pulsars – sources of rhythmic radio emission – neutron stars with very fast rotation around the axis in tenths and hundredths of a second and with a strong magnetic field of 108 T. The Crab Nebula. Some pulsars emit not only radio waves, but also visible radiation, X-rays and gamma rays. The period of the slowest pulsars is about 4 s, (P = 4.8 s, Centaurus X-3) the period of one of the fastest is thousandths of a second (PSR 1937 pulsar – 1.558 ms). At the end of 1982, a millisecond pulsar with a period of 0.00155 s was discovered in the constellation Chanterelle. A rotation with such an astonishingly short period means that the star makes 645 revolutions per second.

Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
