  • The upper limit on the effective surface temperature of the neutron star (NS) PSR J0205+6449 in the supernova remnant 3C 58 obtained recently by Slane et al. (2002) is analyzed using a modern theory of NS cooling (Kaminker et al. 2002). The observations can be explained by cooling of a superfluid NS with the core composed of neutrons, protons, and electrons, where direct Urca process is forbidden. However, combined with the data on the surface temperatures of other isolated NSs, it gives… CONTINUE READING
