Parkes observations for project PX500 semester 2018OCTS_41
This proposal relates to time purchased by the Chinese Academy of Sciences for Parkes follow-up confirmation and timing of FAST discoveries. As the observing time has been purchased this proposal (and the related PX501) does not require TAC grading. The primary reason for submitting a proposal is to ensure an outreach statement and that the propo... moresal is entered into OPAL for the data archive to access. The Chinese team have two time requests. The time scheduled for the first, relating to this proposal, will be allocated in blocks of 24 hours and the data will become available in the data archive with an 18 month embargo period. The second type of time will be scheduled in shorter blocks and the data archived with a 10 year embargo. less

PX500 - FAST: category 1 purchased time
The World's largest telescope, the 500m FAST telescope, has recently commenced observations in China. One of the primary science goals is to discover new pulsars, a form of extreme star. With its huge sensitivity, FAST will discover a huge number of these stars. It is necessary to monitor these stars over many years in order to understand how th... moreey evolve and whether they have orbiting companions (the first extra-solar planets were discovered around a pulsar) and so we will use the Parkes telescope to first confirm the existence of the pulsars and then to monitor them over the timescale of this project. less
