View Full Version : Spin! Crab Pulsar Speed Jumps Linked To Billions Of Tiny Vortices

2014-Apr-14, 02:30 PM
Pulsars — those supernova leftovers that are incredibly dense and spin very fast — may change their speed due to activity of billions of vortices in the fluid beneath their surface, a new study says. The work is based on a combination of research and modelling and looks at the Crab Nebula pulsar,*which has periodic […]
