A single flash from
the sky pointed the way to a bizarre star that rotates very slowly, making it difficult to figure out waht it is
PSR J0901-4046, callenges our
current understanding of how these systems evolve" due to its slow pirouette of 76 seconds hich is usual for pulsars
Pulsars are rapidly r
otating objects that belong to the family of neutron stars. These are ultra-dense, city-sized objects
They are thought to
emerge from powerful supernova explosions of massive stars. But typically, pulsars rotate several times a second.
It makes PSR J0901-4046
and its slow pirouette rather strange, and unlike any of the other 3,000 other pulsars found in our Milky Way galaxy.
It belong to a
"theorized class of ultra-long period magnetars with extremely strong magnetic fieldsIt
