Spinning Pulsars - Youngest and Brightest is Creates Another 'Mystery' for Scientists
Astronomers have found the brightest and youngest example yet of a fast-spinning star, suggesting that the extremely luminous versions of these super-dense objects may be far more common than thought...

:fermipulsar:

..The pulsar's extreme brightness and youth challenge current ideas about how super-bright millisecond pulsars form and how widespread they may be, researchers said...

...When a mass as great as our sun's is packed into a space the size of a city, the conserved angular momentum causes the resulting neutron star to spin very rapidly and to emit a ray of high-energy light that sweeps around like a lighthouse beam.

This light appears to pulse because astronomers see the beam only when it's pointed at Earth. "Normal" pulsars rotate at a rate between 7 and 3,750 revolutions per minute, but millisecond pulsars can spin much faster — up to 43,000 rotations per minute...

J1823-3021A also appears to have a much stronger magnetic field than other millisecond pulsars. The exotic object's combination of characteristics is likely to have astronomers scratching their heads, Freire said.

..."It challenges the way we believe millisecond pulsars form," he said. "It was not thought that, for the spin period of this object (5.44 ms), they could be so energetic and have such a high magnetic field."...

...The researchers aren't yet sure whether millisecond pulsar formation theories will need a tweak or a serious overhaul.

"We are currently investigating a number of possibilities," study co-author Michael Kramer, director of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy, said in a statement. "Nature might even be forming millisecond pulsars in a way we have not anticipated."

They are communicators of information. Electrical/magnetic create information (energy) streams traveling at - and faster than - the speed of light.

Thread: Faster-than-Light (Superluminal) Electric Currents could explain Pulsars
The new paradigm is cracking through into science...
i]...And what I've found is utterly fascinating.


Singleton says the basic principle of FTL currents goes back to work by English physicist Oliver Heaviside and German physicist Arnold Sommerfeldt in the 1890s, but was forgotten because Einstein's theories dissuaded physicists from thinking about FTL phenomena, even those that evaded the theories' strictures. I've only just touched on this engrossing physics and I recommend you read the team's papers, beginning with this one. "People just don't think about things moving faster than the speed of light," Singleton says. "This is a completely wide open and unexplored field."

We need to learn how to supercompress things as well. Would help with energy reserves. Makes me think of Doc Oc from spiderman and how he created a star in his lab. SCIENCE!!

They are fourth or fifth dimensional objects, the one at the end of the orion spur, Vela, is some kind of stargate for stepping down through the dimensions according to Jose arguelles.
Check out the whole series on pulsar cosmology, its right up your street...
