We dedicate this book
To our fellow citizens
Who, for love of truth,
Take from their own wants
By taxes and gifts,
And now and then send forth
One of themselves
As dedicated servant,
To forward the search
Into the mysteries and marvelous simplicities
Of this strange and beautiful universe,
Our home.

—dedication of “Gravitation”, Misner, Thorne & Wheeler

Pulsars, superdense neutron stars, are perhaps the most extraordinary physics laboratories in the universe.

Praise The LORD, He certainly meant for us to be able to study His creation. He gives us what we need.

I had forgotten that so little time elapsed from discovery of neutron star/pulsar and the Nobel Prize for it in 1974. Seven years is pretty darned fast.

Thanks for posting. I’ve always been intrigued with neutron stars, I think the most fascinating objects in the universe
