Magnetars are radio starsAnomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) are slowly rotating neutron stars with very bright and variable X-ray emission. They are believed to be magnetars — powered by strong magnetic fields — but unlike 'normal' pulsars, never seem to have pulsed radio emissions. Camilo et al. report that the anomalous X-ray pulsar XTE J1810-197 does in fact emit radio pulses at every rotation. This means that magnetars can be radio pulsars, and there is no need for alternative models to explain… CONTINUE READING
