The lives of the most massive stars in our Universe are short, and end with one of nature’s most energetic phenomena — cataclysmic events known as supernovae. These spectacular explosions are bright enough to outshine entire galaxies and, despite their potential for destruction on an incredible scale, are also extremely important; in the final few seconds of these stars’ lives, they produce the heaviest elements in our Universe, and their titanic explosions carry these elements across the galaxy to be deposited in the clouds of gas and dust which eventually condense to form stars and planets. Remarkably, we encounter the product of supernovae explosions on a daily basis.
And what’s left after these colossal explosions? In many cases, what remains is a neutron star — the simmering remains of the stellar core, unimaginably dense and spinning hundreds of times every second. These rapidly spinning objects are called pulsars, and provide key insights to researchers working to understand a wide array of astronomical phenomena.
