Parkes observations for project P1054 semester 2020APRS_08

With this proposal we ask time to begin a follow-up campaign of potential new discoveries from the TRAPUM (TRAnsients and PUlsars with Meerkat) survey, which is due to start in January 2020. About 10 new pulsars are expected to be found during the first semester of operations, in targeted pointings towards supernova remnants, pulsar wind nebulae an... more

P1054 - Initial follow-up of pulsar discoveries from MeerKAT targetted searches

Pulsars are incredible compact residues generated in the supernova explosion of dying massive stars. These sorts of stellar corpses concentrate the mass of one and a half Suns in a sphere just 25 km across. They are so dense that a spoonful of their matter would weight 100 billion tons on Earth! Thanks to their rapid rotation - the fastest spins 71... more
