Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers reported in the journal Physical Review Letters that they have found a "glitch" in a 40-year-old theory explaining the periodic speeding up or "glitching" of pulsars. Pulsars emit a rotating beam of electromagnetic radiation, which can be detected by powerful telescopes once it sweeps past the Earth. The cosmic objects, which are highly magnetized rotating neutron stars formed from the remains of supernovae, rotate...

Pulsar -- A pulsar, which originally stood for pulsating radio source, is a rapidly rotating neutron star, whose electromagnetic radiation is observed in regularly spaced interval, or pulses. Pulsars are closely related to magnetars, the main difference being the strenght of the object's magnetic field. History Pulsars were discovered by Jocelyn Bell and Antony Hewish in 1967 while they were using a radio array to study the scintillation of quasars. They found a very regular...
