Although only 22 millisecond pulsars (MSPs) are currently known to exist in the globular cluster (GC) 47 Tucanae, this cluster may harbor 30− 60 MSPs, or even up to ∼ 200. In this Letter, we model the pulsed curvature radiation (CR) gamma-ray flux expected from a population of MSPs in 47 Tucanae. These MSPs produce gamma-rays in their magnetospheres via… CONTINUE READING
