A millisecond pulsar
The radio properties of 4C21.53 have been an enigma for many years. First, the object displays interplanetary scintillations (IPS) at 81 MHz, indicating structure smaller than 1 are s, despite itsExpand

LSST Science Book, Version 2.0
A survey that can cover the sky in optical bands over wide fields to faint magnitudes with a fast cadence will enable many of the exciting science opportunities of the next decade. The Large SynopticExpand

Exploring the Optical Transient Sky with the Palomar Transient Factory
The Palomar Transient Factory (PTF) is a wide-field experiment designed to investigate the optical transient and variable sky on time scales from minutes to years. PTF uses the CFH12k mosaic camera,Expand

Neutral Hydrogen and the Diffuse Interstellar Medium
Neutral atomic hydrogen (HI) is an important component of the interstellar medium (ISM). The Galaxy has been estimated to contain about 4.8 x 109 M⊙ of HI (Henderson et al. 1982)*. Estimates for theExpand

Galactic and Extragalactic Radio Astronomy
An ulrasonic liquid level measurement device is used to measure the depth of a flowing liquid in a channel using an ultrasonic transducer that is positioned out of contact with the liquid and aboveExpand

The local Galactic magnetic field
The Galactic magnetic field is analyzed based on the large amount of pulsar rotation measures (RMs) now available, and regions of the sky suspected of producing anomalous RMs are discussed. The NorthExpand

THE PROGENITOR OF SUPERNOVA 2011dh/PTF11eon IN MESSIER 51
We have identified a luminous star at the position of supernova (SN) 2011dh/PTF11eon, in pre-SN archival, multi-band images of the nearby, nearly face-on galaxy Messier 51 (M51) obtained by theExpand

Binary and Millisecond Pulsars
Most of the ~600 known pulsars are single and located in the disk of our Galaxy. There is circumstantial evidence that the pulsars in this majority are created in supernova (SN) explosions, by theExpand

The Atomic Component
We review the physical conditions and the distribution of the three phases which consitute the atomic component: the cold clouds, the warm, neutral medium and the warm, ionized medium. Together,Expand
