Parkes observations for project P992 semester 2018OCTS_01


Relativistic binary pulsars allow for a multitude of important scientific applications through the process of high-precision pulsar timing, including some of the most constraining tests of gravitational theories ever conducted. However, known technical challenges exist in the process of timing relativistic binary pulsars across large observing band... more

P992 - Exploratory observations of a relativistic binary pulsar with an ultra-wideband receiver.


Parkes is currently observing PSR J1757-1854, a pulsar which spins once every 21.5 milliseconds. Pulsars, rapidly-rotating neutron stars, are some of the densest and fastest-spinning objects in the known universe, and studies of them can provide a large number of exciting scientific results. This particular pulsar is in orbit around another (non-pu... more
