A two-solar-mass neutron star measured using Shapiro delay
Neutron stars are composed of the densest form of matter known to exist in our Universe, the composition and properties of which are still theoretically uncertain. Measurements of the masses or radiiExpand

A Massive Pulsar in a Compact Relativistic Binary
Introduction Neutron stars with masses above 1.8 solar masses (M☉), possess extreme gravitational fields, which may give rise to phenomena outside general relativity. These strong-field deviationsExpand

The Host Galaxy and Redshift of the Repeating Fast Radio Burst FRB 121102
The precise localization of the repeating fast radio burst (FRB 121102) has provided the first unambiguous association (chance coincidence probability p ≲ 3 × 10‑4) of an FRB with an optical andExpand

A direct localization of a fast radio burst and its host
Fast radio bursts are astronomical radio flashes of unknown physical nature with durations of milliseconds. Their dispersive arrival times suggest an extragalactic origin and imply radio luminositiesExpand

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

A Radio Pulsar/X-ray Binary Link
From X-ray Binary to Pulsar Pulsars with millisecond rotational periods are thought to originate from neutron stars in low-mass x-ray binaries that had their spin frequencies increased byExpand

Transient pulsed radio emission from a magnetar
Anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) are slowly rotating neutron stars with very bright and highly variable X-ray emission that are believed to be powered by ultra-strong magnetic fields of >1014 G,Expand

A Radio Pulsar Spinning at 716 Hz
We have discovered a 716-hertz eclipsing binary radio pulsar in the globular cluster Terzan 5 using the Green Bank Telescope. It is the fastest spinning neutron star found to date, breaking theExpand

Fast Radio Burst Discovered in the Arecibo Pulsar ALFA Survey
Recent work has exploited pulsar survey data to identify temporally isolated, millisecond-duration radio bursts with large dispersion measures (DMs). These bursts have been interpreted as arisingExpand

The Repeating Fast Radio Burst FRB 121102 as Seen on Milliarcsecond Angular Scales
The millisecond-duration radio flashes known as fast radio bursts (FRBs) represent an enigmatic astrophysical phenomenon. Recently, the sub-arcsecond localization (∼100 mas precision) of FRB 121102Expand
