  • Many neutron stars are observed to be moving with spatial velocities, in excess of 500 km s-1. A number of mechanisms have been proposed to give neutron stars these high velocities. One of the leading classes of models proposed invokes asymmetries in the core of a massive star just prior to collapse. These asymmetries grow during the collapse, causing the resultant supernova to be also asymmetric. As the ejecta is launched, it pushes off (or kicks) the newly formed neutron star.
