  • Exotic Pulsations The launch of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope in 2008 enabled the detection of large numbers of pulsars. Millisecond pulsars, neutron stars with millisecond periods, are much more difficult to find in gamma-ray data. In a computational tour de force, Pletsch et al. (p. 1314, published online 25 October) detected gamma-ray pulsations from a formerly unidentified gamma-ray source in the Fermi Large Area Telescope Second Source Catalog. The pulsating neutron star orbits a… CONTINUE READING
