Unique among neutron stars, 1E 1207.4−5209 is an X-ray pulsar with a spin period of 424 ms that contains at least two strong absorption features in its energy spectrum. This neutron star is positionally coincident with the supernova remnant PKS 1209−51/52 and has been identified as a member of the growing class of radioquiet compact central objects in… CONTINUE READING
