  • The system PSR J0737–3039 is the only binary pulsar known to consist of two radio pulsars (PSR J0737–3039 A and PSR J0737–3039 B). This unique configuration allows measurements of spin orientation for both pulsars: pulsar A's spin is tilted from the orbital angular momentum by no more than 14 deg at 95% confidence; pulsar B's by 130 ± 1 deg at 99.7% confidence. This spin-spin misalignment requires that the origin of most of B's present-day spin is connected to the supernova that formed pulsar B… CONTINUE READING
