A Population of Fast Radio Bursts at Cosmological Distances
Mysterious Radio Bursts It has been uncertain whether single, short, and bright bursts of radio emission that have been observed are celestial or terrestrial in origin. Thornton et al. (p. 53; seeExpand

A repeating fast radio burst
Fast radio bursts are millisecond-duration astronomical radio pulses of unknown physical origin that appear to come from extragalactic distances. Previous follow-up observations have failed to findExpand

The First Fermi Large Area Telescope Catalog of Gamma-ray Pulsars
The dramatic increase in the number of known gamma-ray pulsars since the launch of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly GLAST) offers the first opportunity to study a population of theseExpand

A study of 315 glitches in the rotation of 102 pulsars
The rotation of more than 700 pulsars has been monitored using the 76-m Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank. Here we report on a new search for glitches in the observations, revealing 128 new glitchesExpand

A strong magnetic field around the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Galaxy
Earth’s nearest candidate supermassive black hole lies at the centre of the Milky Way. Its electromagnetic emission is thought to be powered by radiatively inefficient accretion of gas from itsExpand

Gamma-Ray Emission from the Shell of Supernova Remnant W44 Revealed by the Fermi LAT
Supernova Remnant Observations The sources of the cosmic rays that bombard Earth have been mysterious, but more recent explanations invoke high-energy acceleration of protons by the remnants ofExpand

The repeating Fast Radio Burst FRB 121102: Multi-wavelength observations and additional bursts
We report on radio and X-ray observations of the only known repeating Fast Radio Burst (FRB) source, FRB 121102. We have detected six additional radio bursts from this source: five with the GreenExpand

The host galaxy of a fast radio burst
In recent years, millisecond-duration radio signals originating in distant galaxies appear to have been discovered in the so-called fast radio bursts. These signals are dispersed according to aExpand

45 years of rotation of the Crab pulsar
The 30-Hz rotation rate of the Crab pulsar has been monitored at Jodrell Bank Observatory since 1984 and by other observatories before then. Since 1968, the rotation rate has decreased by about 0.5Expand
