A New Way to Discover Millisecond Pulsars

  Although the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has seen the gamma-rays from over 100 pulsars, many potential pulsars remain undiscovered because the pulsations are not obvious in the Fermi data. Combining radio observations with Fermi, scientists have now found five more rapidly rotating pulsars, including one particularly intriguing object, indicating that techniques will continue to [continue reading]
