Supernovae, Gamma-Ray Bursts and Stellar Rotation
One of the most dramatic possible consequences of stellar rotation is its influence on stellar death, particularly of massive stars. If the angular momentum of the iron core when it collapses is such
Pulsars and Local Cosmic Ray Prehistory
Pulsars have ages and distances which, if they are supernova remnants, would make them significant sources of local cosmic rays during the last 106 years.

Origin of Cosmic Rays
The observed isotropy of the cosmic rays incident on the earth is claimed to be a consequence of a magnetic field assumed to exist in interstellar space, which is compared with the average interstellar field of 10−20 gauss.
